The inaugural march through the Class 6A playoffs continues tonight for Highland Park.
After dispatching Skyline in their postseason debut last week, the Lady Scots will face Rockwall in the area round at 6 p.m. at Lake Highlands, the same site as their opening-round triumph.
HP remains undefeated on the season, and its offense might be peaking at the right time. The Lady Scots (20-0-2) have scored three or more goals in nine of their last 10 games.
The Lady Jackets (14-8) finished second in District 11-6A during the regular season and shut out Harker Heights 2-0 in their bi-district game last week.
The winner of tonight’s game will meet North Mesquite in the regional quarterfinals after the Lady Stallions — who were beaten twice by HP during District 10-6A play — upset Rowlett 2-1 on Thursday. Three of the four playoff teams from 10-6A are still alive.
