Lionettes rout Monte Alto 6-1 to advance to area round

LA FERIA — The Lionettes began aggressive and stayed aggressive throughout Saturday’s Class 4A bi-district soccer playoff clash against Monte Alto.

La Feria scored two goals midway through the first half and four goals in the second as the Lionettes defeated the Lady Blue Devils 6-1 to move on to the area round where they’ll face Pleasanton at Kingsville’s Mopac Field on Friday.
