The 9-5A girls soccer race appears destined to go down to the wire and that has not changed during the last week.

Reedy (7-0-4, 25 points) is the only district team without a loss and that remains the case after a 3-0 victory over Frisco on Tuesday.

Rachel Buckle tallied a pair of goals, getting assists from Alena Ultes and Reganne Morris and Maeve Jones added a score and the defense did the rest.

The Lions find themselves tied for first place with Centennial (8-2-1, 25), who picked up a 5-2 win over Heritage, despite a pair of goals from Ashlyn Mills via assists from Kamryn Jiles.

Memorial (7-2-2, 23)  not only stayed within two points of the leaders, it also leapfrogged Wakeland (6-2-3, 21) into third in the standings with a 2-0 victory.

Lone Star (5-2-4, 17) continues to hang around poised to make a push after a 4-1 win over Lebanon Trail and Independence (3-4-4, 13) gave its playoff hopes a boost with a 2-0 shutout of Liberty.

Carissa Petty scored off an assist from Sophia Ortiz and Brighton Mooney set up a goal by Stephanie Farias. The Knights also got a stout effort on the other end from goalkeeper Sam Jones and defenders Madison Murphy, Kelsey Hogan, Camdyn Wood and Marissa Zurita.

While the top of the girls standings is a crowded one, that is currently not the case on the boys side, where Wakeland (10-0-1, 31) continues to maintain a solid lead over the field.

The Wolverines remained unbeaten on Tuesday, as Brennan Bezdek once again accounted for the lone goal of the match in a 1-0 victory over Memorial.

Frisco and Reedy entered the night separated by just one point and the game went down to the wire, but the Raccoons struck twice in the final 2:25 to turn a tie into a 3-1 victory.

Diego Pepi scored with an assist from Shirzaad Ghadially and Jade Hiller set up a score from Matthew Diaz and then converted a pass from Andrew Burris as Frisco (7-2-2, 23) went on to the win.

Aiden Cumbie accounted for the lone goal for the Lions (6-4-1, 19),who fell back into fourth place.

Centennial (6-3-2, 20) was able to bump up into third with its 3-1 win against Heritage, as Max Flaviano scored twice, Kiefer Cauilan recorded a goal and an assist and Andres Arrangoiz had a pair of assists in the winning effort.

Liberty (5-3-3, 18) moved one point out of fourth, getting goals from Jack Bryan and Andrew Siv in a 2-0 win over Independence.

And Lebanon Trail (4-4-3, 15) picked up three valuable points with a 3-1 win over Lone Star. Luis Gil scored off a feed from Matthew Hampton and assisted on a goal by Sebastian Ramirez and Noam Zilca for the Trail Blazers.

The 9-5A teams were already scheduled to take a district break on Friday and the timing proved to be perfect given the inclement weather that has hit the area.
