They scored early and led for most of the game, but in the end, the Lady Pirates fell to the Lady Stingarees 2-1 in their bi-district playoff game held at Abshier Stadium in Deer Park Friday evening.

The Lady Pirates scored early when Baileigh Ruggles found the net with an assist from Brooklyn Healy just 2:07 gone in the first half to put the Lady Pirates up 1-0.

The Lady Stingarees defense denied Vidor another score with a strengthened defense and aggressive second half play that saw Texas City Senior Destiny Barrientos even the score at 1-1 with 2:44 gone in the second half and sophomore Skylar Hernandez kick the go ahead score off a corner kick with 20:06 remaining in the game.

With a strong south wind blowing the length of the field almost continuously, all goals were scored on the north goal.
