THS girls soccer faces challenge

The Terrell High School girls soccer team faces a crucial district battle at 7 p.m. against Forney.

For the girls, it is a rematch of a heated affair that took place Feb. 14 in Forney. The Lady Jackrabbits prevailed 3-0 but the game was closer than the score would indicate.

The game remained scoreless until five minutes before halftime when Forney turned it on. The shorthanded Lady Tigers were playing without leading Mollie Tolbert and Ali May, who was lost after just five minutes.

They will be shorthanded tonight as well. Terrell could be without the services of goalie Alex Strange, who is out with a a shoulder injury suffered against Mesquite Poteet.

Tonight should be more interesting as Tolbert and May will be back in the fold and the game is in Terrell.

That would make things more difficult but not impossible given the stellar play of freshman Kendall Whitfield, who recorded a shutout against Crandall on Friday night.

In a game where emotions are sure to run high, the Lady Tigers must keep their composure better than they did in Forney. THS soccer coach John Lantrip has stressing the importance to his team ever since the last meeting.

If they do, they may just be talking about an invaluable district victory for a young team.
