Ladies head to break with rivalry win over Ursuline

For just the second time since 2015, the Bishop Lynch women's soccer team came out victorious against rival Ursuline Academy.

The Friars (6-1 overall, 3-1 district) struck twice in the second half of Thursday's district contest at Roffino Stadium, while Madison White and the rest of the defense kept their own net empty for a 2-0 win.

The loss was Ursuline's first this season, as the Bears fell to 8-1 overall and 4-1 in league play.

After a scoreless first half, Jaida Thomas blasted a through ball from Mallory Johnson for the first tally of the night. With four minutes to go, Johnson smashed home a cross from Mariana Zevallos to seal the deal.

White recorded just the second shutout of Ursuline in 10 years.

The Friars will compete again Jan. 3-5 at the National Elite Prep Showcase in Fort Worth and Southlake. The girls will take on Grapevine, Austin St. Stephens and Odessa High during the three-day event.
