In a tight battle for playoff positioning in District 7-6A, the Waxahachie High boys’ soccer team suffered a 3-0 loss to Grand Prairie on Tuesday night.
The Gophers took a 1-0 lead before halftime, then added two insurance goals in the second half.
The Indians (11-5-5, 3-5-5) were scheduled to host Mansfield Summit on Friday night at 7:30 p.m., then will be off for what amounts to a very long spring break. Their final two matches of the regular season won’t be until March 17 at South Grand Prairie and March 20 at home vs. Mansfield.
WHS sits in fifth place at 14 points in the 7-6A standings and trailed Mansfield Lake Ridge by just two points entering Friday’s action.
