MABANK–The Mabank Lady Panthers got a big, 4-1, win over Texarkana Pleasant Grove Wednesday to advance to the sectional round of the girls soccer playoffs.
The game began Tuesday, but severe storms rolled through and stopped the game. The game was continued Wednesday.
All the points in the game were scored Tuesday.
Lady Panther Savannah Henderson scored three goals and Ashton Norman added one goal.
The win gives Mabank a 22-6-1 season record, and advanced them to face the Hallsville Lady Bobcats Friday in Mabank.
“We didn’t play our best game,” Mabank lady Panther Jeff Downs said. “But we did what was needed to win.”
The Hallsville Lady Bobcats won Tuesday’s playoff game against the Texas Lady Tigers, 4-2.
