Warren’s back four, led by center back Bailey Herring, played a terrific opening few minutes of the first half. Herring would clear a ball nearly off the line in the thirty-first minute to keep things all square at 0-0. White Hall found the net just five minutes later however. A lose ball in the box clattered around and finally found its way in to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead. They pickup up another just before the midway point to lead 2-0.

Head Lady Jack Soccer Coach Cody Jones made a few halftime adjustments. Herring moved forward into an attacking position. The move paid off as a shot from the senior in the forty-second minute was blocked, but not cleared. Warren’s Leslie Vega was there to slot it home from just outside the six-yard box.

However, White Hall regained their two-goal advantage not long afterward. The Bulldogs went on to add two more before the final whistle to defeat Warren 5-1.

The Lady Jacks are 0-1 on the season after the loss. They will take on Hot Springs Thursday on the road at 5:00 p.m.
