The 2011-12 version of the Weatherford girls varsity soccer team will open its season on Friday. The Lady Roos play their opener on the road, taking the pitch against the Abilene Lady Eagles. First kick for the varsity is set for 5:30 p.m., with the junior varsity starting at 4 p.m.
After another non-district game, hosting Richland at Roo Stadium on Tuesday, the WHS girls hit the early-season tourney circuit, playing in tournaments at Killeen, the Knights of Columbus gathering in Stephenville and the Aledo tourney.
The “important” season will begin next month with a Feb. 3 match against District 4-5A foe North Crowley, at Panther Stadium, followed by the district home opener on Feb. 7, as the Lady Roos take on Arlington Lamar.
Weatherford tries to return to postseason play in 2012 in a very competitive district.
