When the district season started, the Midlothian girls soccer team was trying to get back on track. An even showing in the Cement Capital Classic left the team scratching its collective head. A district opening 0-0 draw with Kennedale didnít help things any more.

But after that, the Lady Panthers have rolled to take control of the District 16-4A race. On Wednesday, the team got a little closer to clinching the title as the girls rolled to a 4-0 win over Kennedale to avenge that tie.

Four different players scored the goals in the game which was made up on Wednesday after snow flurries on Tuesday forced a cancellation.

Kaitlin Bush, Eliza Carey, Alex Furr and Jentry Yates scored the goals for the Lady Panthers as they improved to 11-6-2 overall with a 5-0-1 mark in district play. The team has four games remaining in the district schedule and is currently two games up on Mansfield Timberview.

Led by Preston Williamsonís two-goal brace, the Midlothian boys soccer team notched a huge 5-0 win over Kennedale to stay in the hunt for the District 16-4A title. ?Williamsonís two goals sparked a big night of offense as Brian Bynum, Kyle Markwardt and Chase Robertson each put a shot into the goal to carry the team to a win.

With the victory, the Panthers still sit in second place just behind Mansfield Legacy with four games left in the regular season. Midlothian and Legacy will square off on the field on March 5 with the district title on the line. Currently, the Panthers are 8-4-6 with a 4-1-1 district record. The teamís only district loss was to Legacy.
