Rainy weather and District 15-5A foes have proven no match for Highland Park this season, with the latest example being a 2-1 home win over North Forney on Tuesday.
Frances Ann Matise and Presley Echols each scored for the unbeaten Lady Scots (16-0-1, 9-0), whose streak of three consecutive shutouts was snapped. On Feb. 23, HP defeated Lovejoy 2-0 behind goals from Echols and Sarah O’Neal.
On the boys side, HP also topped North Forney 2-1 on the road after trailing at halftime. Felix Gottlieb and Luis Heredia supplied the goals for the Scots (5-10-2, 3-4-2). HP sits in fifth place in the district standings with five games remaining.
Both HP teams will next face West Mesquite on Friday, with the girls playing at home and the boys traveling to Mesquite Memorial Stadium.
