RAYMONDVILLE — The Pace Lady Vikings are advancing to the third round of the Class 5A state soccer playoffs for the second straight year.

The Lady Vikings scored all four of their goals during the first half in defeating Flour Bluff 4-1 Tuesday in the area round of the playoffs at Raymondville’s Burnett Stadium.

“It was very tiring, but accomplishing,” said Alma Perez, a senior center midfielder for Pace, of the victory. “We’re actually kind of happy because Flour Bluff beat us 4-2 last year (in the third round of the playoffs), so we’re proud of this win.”

Kryssie Rivera and Alexis Guajardo each scored a pair of goals during the initial 40 minutes to highlight the Pace victory.

“I think we really put our hearts into the game,” said Rivera, a senior forward. “We definitely left our blood, sweat and tears out there. We’re amazed about what happened, but I think everyone wanted to win this game real bad (because of last year).”

The District 32-5A champion Lady Vikings next play in the regional quarterfinals later this week against District 30-5A runner-up Corpus Christi Veterans Memorial, a 3-1 winner against Sharyland High, also on Tuesday.
