Whitehouse edged Jacksonville 2-1 Friday, March 2. Ally Leihgeber and Kaitlyn Hosley each booted a goal for Whitehouse.

To open the second half of the district slate, the Ladycats dominated Corsicana 6-0. The victory was set up by outstanding defense from Makenzie Alexander, Regan Tyrrell, Kate Idrogo,  Maddy Sparks, and Jenna Leihgeber.

The offense was stout as well and Chloe Towler, Hosley, Ally Reed and Brooke Morris all scored goals. Morris and Alicia Gurrusquieta also tallied an assist apiece.

To end the first half of the march through the district opponents, Whitehouse had little trouble from Lindale. The Ladycats coasted to a 6-1 victory due in part from stout defensive play from Gurrusquieta, Jocelyn Gonzalez and Reed, who had to cover for goalie Sydney Malmstrom, who was out with an injury.

Morris, Hosley and Reed all scored goals for the Ladycats and Lauren Tipton, Hosley, Reed and Morris each recorded an assist.
