MESQUITE â€” Robert E. Lee ended its scoring drought, but not its losing streak as the Lady Raiders fell 4-1 to Mesquite Horn on Friday at E.H. Hanby Stadium.
The loss keeps REL (7-8 overall) winless in District 12-5A (0-3) while the Jaguars (2-0, 6 pts) remain unbeaten in league play.
â€śWe are still looking for players who can combine with other players, run at people and score goals,â€ť Lee coach Chris Woodard said. â€śWe made some silly mistakes on a couple of the goals tonight, but itâ€™s hard to get on to the back players because theyâ€™ve played pretty well.
â€śWe had some chances. We got behind the defense a few times and didnâ€™t score and that is what has been hurting us.â€ť
Lee trailed 1-0 at halftime, but looked to have equalized early in the second half, only for the refereeâ€™s flag to nullify the goal because of offside.
The Jaguars then scored twice to make it 3-0 before Lee senior Julia Harrison pulled one back for the Lady Raiders when she converted a penalty kick.
Lee aims to get its first district points on Tuesday against Mesquite.
