12-5A GIRLS SOCCER: Horn blanks Heath, North picks up key victory over Skeeters
By DEVIN HASSON, firstname.lastname@example.org
Horn has found itself in this position before.
With a bye on the opening day of the 12-5A season, the Jaguars found themselves playing catch-up with Rockwall from the start in the district points race.
Horn caught the Yellow Jackets and then passed them, but a hiccup against North Mesquite caused them to fall back into second place.
Horn spread the wealth offensively, getting goals from four different players. Haley Hicks opened the scoring in the 10th minute when she took a feed from Adrianna Smith to give the Jaguars a 1-0 lead.
Just seven minutes later, that duo was at it again, only this time it was Hicks assisting on a goal from Smith to make it 2-0.
Horn kept the pressure on and pushed the advantage to 3-0 when Liz Campos scored in the 27th minute off an assist from Brooke Hill.
The Jaguars provided some second-half insurance when Arianna Dunsworth scored off a pass from Torri Sayman.
North Mesquite picked up one of its biggest victories of the season by downing crosstown rival Mesquite, 3-0. The Skeeters could have overtaken the Stallions for fourth place with a win, but instead, North Mesquite (4-2-0-2, 14 points) now holds a comfortable lead over the Skeeters (3-5-0-0, nine points) in the race for the final playoff spot.
North Mesquite got a pair of goals from Aileen Lara and another score from Alexis Santos and the defense did the rest.
Mesquite has another tough task on Tuesday when it hosts district-leading Rockwall. North Mesquite is idle while Horn will host last-place Tyler Lee at Berry Middle School.
