Lady Rabbit Soccer Wins Area Championship
The Lady Rabbits traveled to Athen’s Bruce Field to take on the Jacksonville Maidens. Forney High knew that the defense would have to step up to lockdown the unbeaten 16-5A District Champions. Defenders Belle Enriquez, Megan Wills, Gabby Garza, Kloe Brown, Hannah Purl and Delaney Welch did an exceptional job of slowing down the offense for their opponent. Meanwhile, the offense got going pretty quick: Goal Bianca Salazar: Assist from Allie Cifuentes, Goal Chloe Chadick: Assist from Bianca Salazar, Goal Kasey Carter: Assist Kaitlyn Johnson and Goal Madison Nance: Assist by Kasey Carter. Fallon Weatherford and Kara Andrews were also integral up top and in the midfield to get the offense rolling. Paige Lewis had a clean sheet in the goal leading the team to a 4-0 victory over Jacksonville. The win earned the 2021 Lady Rabbits the title of Area Champs.
The team is headed to the Regional Quarterfinals of the U.I.L. state soccer playoffs to face Joshua on Friday, April 2nd, at 6:00 P.M. at Mesquite, Hanby Stadium.
