As the field continues to dwindle, the games get bigger for the Highland Park girls soccer team during its postseason run.

The next test for the Lady Scots will come on Tuesday, when HP faces Forney in the Class 4A Region II quarterfinals at 6 p.m. at Lake Highlands. It will be a rematch of a game that HP won 2-1 in January during a season-opening tournament at Highlander Stadium.

The Lady Scots (19-4-1) advanced to the regional quarterfinals with a 2-1 victory over Frisco on Friday, marking their 10th straight win overall. Hope Hyde and Megan Uhr scored the goals for HP, giving Hyde six goals in three playoff games.

Forney knocked off Wylie 2-1 in the sectional round on Friday. The Lady Jackrabbits (17-6-3) were the runner-up behind Mesquite Poteet in District 23-4A during the regular season. Forney’s Kayleigh Phillips is one of the top strikers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The winner will move on to the regional semifinals this weekend in Carrollton, and will meet either Waxahachie or Whitehouse on Friday.

By the way, in boys playoff action, Poteet and Frisco Wakeland will play their regional quarterfinal at Highlander Stadium at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
