The Lady Mustangs soccer team ended the regular season with a record of 15-3-1 and are headed to the playoffs with a second place standing in district at 12-2. 

Over the break, the girls varsity team defeated Lakeview 5-0 and South Garland 9-0, but they came up short against Rowlett in their final game of the season 2-2 in a double shootout.

Before the break, they had a must win game against Wylie who sat atop the standings. The Mustangs battled with a 1-0 win on a late goal.

“We really needed to win this game to stay in district,” midfielder junior Shelby King said. ”We knew Wylie was good, and it was going to be a tight down to the wire game. We pulled it off.”

The Lady Mustangs’ previous game was a 7-1 blowout of North Garland. 

Junior Nia Chacon had a great game putting up a hat trick and senior Storm Harris added two goals of her own towards the win.

“Our offense was clicking well that night,” junior Bibi Mata said. “We were able to push the ball off their side early. It allowed us to get off to a good start and a big lead and never take the foot off the gas.”

Playoff alignments and dates have not been set yet, but bi-district games are on the state UIL calendar for March 25-27.
