The Rockwall girls soccer team went 2-2 at the Plano Tournament and Heath’s girls put up a 2-2 record at the Forney Lady Rabbit Invitational in girls soccer action last weekend.
Rockwall kicked off play against a very strong Frisco Wakeland team that RHS head coach Melissa Garcia said might be even better than its state championship team from two years ago.
Wakeland rolled up a 4-0 win with Tyler Johnson scoring two goals, Maddie Lundberg one and Brooke Hartsock one.
RHS then defeated Irving Nimitz 2-1, led by goals from Nicole Myers and Niki McKnight, and lost to Plano 1-0 on Friday.
The Lady Jackets closed out play on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Frisco Centennial behind the game’s only goal by McKnight in the 74th minute from inside the box.
“The girls had a rough start, but the more they played, the more confortable they got,” said Garcia.
The Rockwall-Heath girls opened with two losses at the Forney Lady Rabbit Invitational before closing with two straight wins.
The Lady Hawks lost to Carrollton Creekview 3-0 on Thursday and to Lake Dallas 2-0 on Friday in their first two games.
They came back strong on Friday with a 2-1 victory versus Garland. Lindsey Gardner smashed two goals to lead the way.
RHHS finished off the tournament with its biggest offensive game of the season, an 8-0 win over Thomas Jefferson.
Skyler Holland ripped three goals, Gardner put up two, Jayden Wheeler posted two and Bailey Bacon nailed one for the Lady Hawks.
