Waxahachie Lady Indians see historic soccer season come to an end in 6A regional quarters

By Travis M. Smith | KBEC Sports

The historic run for the Waxahachie Lady Indian soccer team came to an end in the 6A Region II quarterfinals.

District 11-6A foe Mansfield defeated (19-4-3) Waxahachie, 2-1, in that regional quarterfinal match. The third-round appearance was the furthest-ever in the state’s highest classification for the Lady Indian soccer program.

But just how close were the Lady Indians to a 6A state soccer tournament bid?
The answer is “extremely.”

Mansfield ultimately fell to (22-1) The Woodlands in a shootout after closing out regulation and the two overtime frames tied, 2-2.

The Woodlands then defeated Mansfield Lake Ridge, 1-nil, to advance to the 6A state tournament. It’ll be The Woodlands’ first trip to the state tournament since 2010 — and the Highlanders had to go through three District 11-6A sides to do it.

The Woodlands will face (21-1-2) Flower Mound in the 6A state semifinal.

The Waxahachie Lady Indian roster included five seniors — Josie Flores, Angel Garfias, Trinity Kirby, Victoria Falcon and Bella Curiel.
