Lady Greyhounds come up short in finals of La Feria Lionettes tourney

LA FERIA — PSJA Southwest rallied from behind to defeat San Benito 3-1 at the fourth annual La Feria Lionettes soccer tournament on Saturday afternoon at Lions Stadium.

Two second-half goals from Lizeth Cantu helped the Lady Javelinas overcome an early 1-0 deficit. Teammate Salma Gonzalez also notched a goal in the game as PSJA Southwest managed to navigate through the tournament with a perfect 7-0 record.

“Three games in a day is very heavy and I had to rely a lot on my subs,” said PSJA Southwest head coach Juan Rodriguez. “Everybody performed good as you saw here in the championship.

“We’ve progressed a lot. This is my freshman group from four years ago and their progress is starting to show.”

The Lady Javelinas started the tourney by defeating Mission 1-0 and Rio Hondo 6-0 on Thursday afternoon in group action. On Friday, Southwest hammered Raymondville 9-0 and Weslaco East 2-0 before defeating Palmview and PSJA North on Saturday morning to reach the finals.
