With nine of the 12 Big 6 schools’ soccer teams qualifying for the post season, Mission, La Joya and Sharyland high schools were certainly well represented in the state playoffs. Both of the Sharyland, Mission High School, Veterans Memorial and Juarez-Lincoln teams extended their seasons into the playoffs this year as did the Palmview High School (PHS) boys’ team.
Of those teams, all but the Juarez-Lincoln girls and the Veterans Memorial (VMHS) boys teams emerged victorious from their first or second round playoff games and will be playing in either the 5A area or the 4A sectional round this week.
Last Thursday night, the Sharyland (SHS) girls defeated Laredo LBJ, 5-0, and the boys defeated LBJ, 1-0, to advance to the area round. In Friday’s 5A bi-district action the Juarez-Lincoln boys defeated Laredo Alexander, 7-2, and the PHS boys defeated Del Rio, 2-1, to both advance to the area round as well.
