Lady Hawks’ playoff journey ends after 1-0 loss to Los Fresnos

LOS FRESNOS — For the third time this season, the Los Fresnos Lady Falcons defeated the Harlingen South Lady Hawks on the soccer field.

This time, however, it came at the most inopportune time as the Lady Falcons beat the Lady Hawks 1-0 to end South’s postseason run.

An early goal by Los Fresnos’ Monica Mesa was enough to end Harlingen South’s season and book the Lady Falcons’ fourth trip in five years to the Region IV-6A tournament, being held in Brownsville this weekend.

“We knew coming into this game that Harlingen South wanted to take the opportunity of going to the regional tournament away from us and that they were going to come out aggressive,” said Los Fresnos head coach Patricia Hernandez. “So it was no surprise the way they came out very aggressive defensively, so we counter attacked with a very strong offense.

“In Los Fresnos we have a great tradition of winning and we’re just representing our school.”
