In the 1993 comedy film, ‘Groundhog Day’, Bill Murray’s character keeps having to relive February 2 until he finally gets his priorities straight and wins over the girl of his dreams. This past Tuesday was Groundhog Day and had it followed the plot of the movie, members of the Veterans Memorial Patriots boys and girls soccer teams would’ve had to relive the day over and over again until they defeated the Sharyland Rattlers and Lady Rattlers.
In Tuesday night’s District 31-5A doubleheader, the Lady Patriots fell to the Lady Rattlers by a score of 5-0 and the Patriots boys fell to the Rattlers 5-2.
While the Patriots will have a chance to even up the score against the Rattlers, that will not be until later this month when they play their second round rematch. In the meantime the Patriots’ boys and girls will have to accept the fact that they are 0-1 in district play while the two Sharyland teams improved to 2-0.
