NEDERLAND ROUTS MEMORIAL IN SOCCER

Meg Sheppard continued her outstanding play this season with four goals in Nederland’s 6-2 girls soccer win at Port Arthur Memorial on Monday.

The game closed the regular season for both teams. Nederland (17-2-2, 11-2-1 in 22-5A) finished second in the district and will play Barbers Hill either next Thursday or Friday at a time and location to be determined.

Memorial finished its season missing the playoffs, but got two goals from Guadalupe Contreras and Yvette Mendoza.

Madison Ledet accounted for the other two Nederland goals.
