Lady Hawks rout Hidalgo 5-0 in home opener

HARLINGEN — The Harlingen South Lady Hawks showed some offensive firepower and rock-solid defense as they downed Hidalgo 5-0 in their home opener Tuesday night at Boggus Stadium.

Emily Velazquez, Klarisa Rodriguez and Amber Ray all scored before the half as the Lady Hawks put the finishing touches on their final game before opening the District 32-6A schedule Tuesday against Brownsville Veterans.

“We played well tonight,” said Harlingen South head coach Omar Pedroza. “It’s just one of those games before district where you hope that nobody gets hurt. You try to play everybody and you get that final last look at the team before district starts.

“Our district is really tough and the main deal is that everybody is pretty much healthy, and you play this last game before district hoping nobody gets hurt.”
