MIDLOTHIAN

The Midlothian Heritage girls' soccer team has been on quite the tear since ending a hard-fought match against regional-power Kennedale in a nil-nil tie.

The Jaguars have outscored their opposition — all in District 8-4A action — by a jaw-dropping 30-0 over the last five matches to improve to 17-3-1 on the season and 5-0 in district play. They entered the week ranked third in the latest Texas Girls Coaches Association 4A poll behind No. 1 Lorena and No. 2 Liberty Hill.

Heritage has also now outscored its opposition 82-11 in 21 matches this season.

The win Tuesday against Life Oak Cliff pushed Heritage to 10 points in the district standings and officially clinched the Jaguars a playoff berth with four District 8-4A matches to play.

FRIDAY

The Jaguars started a slow on offense in dense fog last Friday against Life Waxahachie, but Logan Ybarra found the back of the net from 20 yards out in the 26th minute to get the scoring started.

Though the goal was the lone score for the Jaguars in the first half, Heritage found the net four times in the second half to close out the first round of district play with a win, 5-nil.

Rachael Allen finished with a hat trick to run her season-goals total to 12. Allie Beller added the fourth. It was her third of the season.

Beller, Grayce Davis and Tori Needles supplied the assists. Davis' assist was her team-high 10th assist of the season.

Megan McCarthy and Shylar Ray combined for the clean sheet in goal.

TUESDAY

Rachel Allen recorded her second-consecutive hat trick Tuesday night against Life Oak Cliff in an 8-nil Midlothian Heritage win to begin the second half of District 8-4A.

The three goals moved Allen past Katie Greer as the new team-leader with 15 goals on the season. Tori Needles, Mackenzie Jones, Grace Hackney and Logan Ybarra each added one goal to join Allen in the scoring column.

Kayla Aston (2), Brittiney Gardner (2) and Hackney contributed in the assists department.

UP NEXT

Heritage returns to the pitch at 6 p.m Friday on the road against Alvarado.
