'Horns overcome Rockdale, 2-0, advance to second round of state playoffs

It wasn't easy. For the first 67 minutes of Wednesday's first-round state playoff match against the Rockdale County Bulldogs (7-9-0), Lambert boys varsity (17-1-0) had nothing but frustration to show for its efforts.

Campbell Wilson lofted a picture-perfect corner kick over the defense to striker Hayden Fontana who tucked a header past the Bulldog keeper and into the back of the net for a 1-0 Longhorn lead. It was Fontana's 22nd goal of the season and the fans exploded with glee and relief. For most of the game, the Lambert attack was stymied by a tough, stay-at-home Bulldog defense and a skilled, acrobatic keeper. Not that the Lon
