Aledo goalkeeper Woody turns back late Hawks' charge to preserve win

Aledo senior goalkeeper Justen Woody turned back three late Birdville shots from close range, including a breakaway with two and a half minutes remaining in the match, to help the Bearcats to a 2-1 victory over Birdville Friday night in a Class 4A sectional match at Brewer High School.

The win advances the Bearcats (23-1-1) to the regional quarterfinals where they will face the winner of the Midlothian/Crowley sectional match.

Birdville had cut the AHS lead to 2-1 with 5:56 left in the match on a goal by forward Anthony Bardon. The Hawks, using a strong win at their backs in the second half, continued to put on pressure in the Bearcats' defensive end.

With 2:36 remaining, a Birdville attacker was free on a breakaway in the middle, and when he cut to his left the forward tried to poke the ball inside the left post to Woody's right, but Woody made a diving effort to come up with the save.

"I knew I had the angle played right," Woody said. "I just dove and stretched my arms out as far as I could and I deflected the ball out of bounds."
