The Lady Mustangs varsity soccer team has started off their season 6-4-1 coming off a deep fourth round playoff exit last season.

Coming into district play, they had four straight shutout wins against McKinney Boyd, McKinney, Jacksonville and Mesquite Poteet.

In the district opener against Wylie, the Lady Mustangs took a tough 2-0 loss.

“We just never could get any offense going,” senior Brianna Mata said. “They scored quick, and we just never could get back into a rhythm to get back into the game.”

They graduated 13 seniors from last year and have had to find new ways to get the ball in the net, whether that be new schemes or different players involved in the scoring.

“It’s been hard to adjust to all the new people and really get it going,” junior Isabella Savaterre said. ”We started clicking and scoring towards the end of tournaments.  We just have to find that consistently.”

Tonight’s game is another district matchup against Naaman Forest with the Lady Mustangs looking to get back on track and compete for a district championship. 

Naaman has started the season 5-6 and also dropped their first game of district to Rowlett 1-0 and will also look to right the ship Friday against Sachse.
