Playoff spots set for girls high school soccer

March 14, 2017 GMT

Vidor entered Monday night’s match against Lumberton knowing the team would be the fourth seed in the playoffs regardless of a win or loss. But three Lady Pirates played hurt, which forced coach Ralph Fields to rearrange a season-long lineup a week before the playoffs. It was an unwanted change as Vidor plays District 23-5A’s top seed, Porter, at 7 p.m. on March 24 at Barbers Hill’s Eagle Stadium.

Vidor played more on the defense, but Lumberton won 3-0 at Pirate Stadium.

Lumberton’s Reagan Bowman tapped in a goal off a rebound with 13:03 left in the first half, and Kambrie McFarland scored twice on long kicks in the second half.

Lumberton became 22-5A’s third seed when Nederland (11-2-1) beat Memorial 6-2 earlier Monday afternoon. Both teams share the same record, but Nederland earned more standings points because the team beat Lumberton during regulation (3 points) and Lumberton beat Nederland in a shootout (1 point).

Lumberton has now made the playoffs for 26-straight seasons, and will play 23-5A’s second seed, Kingwood Park, at a time and location to be determined next week.

Port Neches-Groves (11-0-2) represents 22-5A’s top seed with the team’s eighth district championship in nine years. PN-G will play 23-5A’s fourth seed, New Caney, on March 24 at 5 p.m. at a site to be determined on Tuesday.
