Lady Scots Survive, Advance in OT
In the playoffs, it’s not about how you win, but only whether you win. So the Highland Park girls won’t complain after a 3-2 overtime victory over Forney on Tuesday in a Class 4A Region II quarterfinal.
Sara Summers scored the game-winner in the first overtime for the Lady Scots (20-4-1), while Hope Hyde scored both of the regulation goals, giving her eight in four postseason games.
The win sends HP back to the regional tournament, where it will face Waxahachie, a 1-0 winner over Whitehouse in another regional quarterfinal on Tuesday. That game will start a semifinal doubleheader on Friday at Standridge Stadium in Carrollton.
It was the second time this season that the Lady Scots knocked off the Lady Jackrabbits, including a 2-1 win during a season-opening tournament in January at Highlander Stadium. It also marked HP’s 12th consecutive victory overall.
