LINDALE — The Jacksonville Maidens soccer team lost 3-1 on the road against Lindale Tuesday night. The loss puts the Maidens on the outside looking in for the playoffs.

The Maidens fell behind 1-0 half way through the second half. The Lindale Lady Eagles added to their lead 15 minutes into the second half. The Maidens were able to cut the Lindale lead in half when Carly Irby stole a ball from the Lindale sweeper and broke in on the goal. She slotted the ball pass the Lindale keeper.

The Lady Eagles scored one more goal with 15 minutes left in the match.

Unfortunately, the Maidens had to play another district game without substitutions.

“We are a good team ,but physically it wears the team down when we don’t have enough players.,” said Jacksonville head coach Howard Story. “We have some players that have managed to play even though they have been injured all season.

“Those injuries plus a broken wrist of one player, a broken leg of another, and a bruised and bleeding kidney of another and players being out for other reasons has made this one of the most difficult seasons I have ever had, but I am very proud of the girls.”

The Maidens play Whitehouse at the Tomato Bowl at 7 p.m. Friday in the last district game of the regular season.
