  North Lamar kept Greenville winless in District 19-4A soccer after blanking the Lady Lions 3-0 on Saturday at T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium.

  North Lamar scored two goals in the first half and one in the second half to claim its first district victory at 1-1-1. The Pantherettes improved to 4-8-1 overall.

  Greenville dropped to 0-3 in district play.

  North Lamar dominated time of possession as the ball stayed on Greenville’s end of the field for most of the game.

  “I’m looking for some intensity and some heart,” said Greenville coach Shelby Hale.

  North Lamar scored off a corner kick with 16:26 left in the first half for its first goal. Maria Leyva scored off an assist from Lexie Stephens.

  Abby Lacey put North Lamar up 2-0 with 5:53 remaining in the first half on a breakaway goal following a feed from Kylie Halstead.

  Daisy Rangal rang up the Pantherettes’ final goal in the second half following an assist from Karlee Alexander.

  Greenville’s junior varsity lost 1-0. Greenville played short-handed the whole game, starting with just 10 players and then ending up with only nine due to an injury.

  Both Greenville teams will be back in 19-4A action at home on Tuesday night against Princeton, starting with the junior varsity match at 5:30 p.m.

  PARIS — Greenville’s Lions claimed their first District 19-4A soccer win of the season on Friday night, outscoring North Lamar 4-2.

  “We had a lot better forward play,” said Lions coach Bert Green.

  Green also praised the play of goalkeeper Jerry Dickeson, plus Doug Gutierrez and Riley Cox.

  Manny Cruz scored two goals for the Lions, one of them on an assist by Guillermo Castillo.

  Luis DeLeon scored off a feed from Gutierrez and Isaac Ramirez also scored.

  The Lions had 15 shots on goal, including a couple by Cruz that bounced off the crossbar.
