Whether it’s the girls or the boys, one of the best soccer rivalries in Brownsville these days is between Hanna and Rivera.

The Lady Golden Eagles and Lady Raiders opened District 32-6A competition Friday at Rivera, and the result was a 3-1 win for the Hanna girls.

Later, the Hanna and Rivera boys played in the nightcap of Friday’s 32-6A doubleheader. It was a good night for Hanna as the Eagles won 1-0 to sweep the two games.

The opening match saw Sytlaly Loyde score all three second-half goals for the Lady Eagles, who built a 3-0 advantage before the Lady Raiders’ Yianey Diaz found the net with seven minutes remaining to account for the final score.

Lady Eagles coach Eliseo Guzman said it was a sweet win for his team against a city rival that had beaten his girls 3-2 with a late goal during the semifinals of the PSJA Tournament two weeks ago.

“We’ve been practicing good passing of the ball (and that was a key for us tonight),” Guzman said. “That’s what we’re trying to do with the girls. Even though it was hard at the beginning (during a scoreless first half), we were (finally) able to open spaces to score our goals, and that helped us a lot.

“Our girls gave everything to beat this (Rivera) team that has a lot of potential. I told our girls, ‘If you don’t give 100 percent, they’re going to beat you,’ so thank God they played with 100 percent (effort).”
