Lady Pirates JV lose at home to Lumberton

A slow start cost the Lady Pirate junior varsity soccer team as they dropped a non-district game 2-0 to the Lumberton Lady Raiders junior varsity Tuesday night at home.

Head Junior Varsity Girls Soccer Coach Priscilla Healy said the team got off to a slow start coming off Spring Break and early mistakes put them behind two goals in the first half.

After settling down, neither the Lady Pirates nor the Lady Raiders could penetrate one another’s tough defense with several saves thwarting both teams.

The junior varsity and varsity teams will close out the regular season Friday at Port Neches against the Lady Indians. For the varsity, the game could determine second place in district and who will be the first round playoff opponent.
