For the boys and girls soccer teams of Juarez-Lincoln, bi-district was an ease – purely because they were given a first round bye. For others, like the boys and girls squad of Sharyland, bi-district was an ease – purely because they were that much better than the competition. All four teams are playing this week in the next playoff round.
Yes, the two teams from Shary took down their first-round opponents by a combined score of 8-0. The Lady Rattlers scored five goals against Laredo Martin while their male counterparts scored three in their shutout over Laredo LBJ. Victoria Valadez led the Lady Rattlers with the team’s first two goals.
The win by Head Coach JJ Lopez’s ladies’squad, set them up for a rematch with Harlingen South. That area game was played last night after press time. The Lady Hawks have eliminated Sharyland in the past three area rounds, including last year’s 3-2 decision. Watch for the game results online at www.progresstimes.net.
