The Lady Cats won their first two games, a 1-0 victory over Dallas Molina in which freshman Melissa Mayo scored the winning goal, and a 2-0 win over Richardson in which freshman Syndi Nguyen put in both goals.

The Lady Cats then played an out-of-pool game against Wichita Falls, losing 4-0, on Saturday morning. That evening, they played in the championship game of their bracket, an fell to Arlington, 5-0.

"All-in all, we played hard and we played well," said coach Joel Bailey. "A lot of girls got some game-time experiences, which was very valuable. This is the first time our JV has been taken to a tournament, and we got second place in our bracket."
