Class 5A North Garland ended Greenville’s run in the Sherman soccer tournament by handing the Lady Lions a 5-2 loss on Saturday.

The Lady Lions came out for the match emotionally flat, according to Greenville coach Catherine Just.

“There was no energy,” she said. “No communication. We just did not play well.”

North Garland jumped ahead 5-0 before the Lady Lions finally scored in the second half.

Jasmine Cooper’s corner kick deflected off a North Garland defender for Greenville’s first goal with about 16 minutes remaining.

Brooklyn Parker scored an unassisted goal for the Lady Lions with three minutes left.

After neither team scored for the first 27 minutes, North Garland scored twice within a 20-second span and then scored two more times before the half ended to grab a 4-0 halftime lead. The Lady Raiders also scored early in the second half to build their 5-0 advantage.

Greenville went 1-2 in tournament, dropping its first game 2-1 to host Sherman on Thursday and also nipping Paris 3-2 on Friday.

The Lady Lions will return to action on Monday night in Sulphur Springs. Game times are at 5:30 and 7 p.m. for the junior varsity and varsity contests.
