Matt Nickell scores pair of goals in area championship win

Matt Nickell scored two goals and Yusef Marwan and Thomas Davis each tallied a goal and two assists to lift the Aledo Bearcats to a 4-1 victory over Wichita Falls High School Tuesday night in a Class 4A area championship match at Memorial Stadium in Wichita Falls.

The Bearcats will advance to the sectional (third) round where they will face Birdville at 7 p.m. Friday, March 26, at Brewer High School.

Aledo led 2-0 after the first half. Nickell got the Bearcats on the board when he scored after a feed from Marwan.

The Bearcats' lead grew to two goals when Marwan found the back of the net after receiving a pass from Davis.

Old High cut the lead in half, 2-1, with a goal a minute and a half into the second half.

But Aledo got the score back on a Davis goal with Marwan earning the assist that extended the Bearcats' lead to 3-1.

The Bearcats closed the scoring later in the second half on a goal from Nickell with Davis recording the assist.
