GHS woes continue


The Granbury Lady Pirates appeared to be on their way to snapping a four-game losing streak Friday when they jumped out to a 2-0 lead on visiting Waxahachie.

Instead, they suffered a fifth consecutive loss, 5-2, as the Lady Indians scored four second-half goals.

“We played a pretty solid first half. We had them where we wanted them,” said Granbury coach David Winkleman.

The Lady Pirates (6-8-1) got goals from Courtney Heathington and Maggie McKenna. They nearly scored a third.

“That would have been huge,” said Winkleman. “It might have been different if that goes in.

“We’ve got a good team. We’ve got talent,” said Winkleman. “We have to get healthy and start winning games.”

Granbury’s boys and girls began District 15-4A play last night against Joshua.

Waxahachie 1 4 – 5

Granbury 2 0 – 2

Granbury goals (assists) – Courtney Heathington (Maggie Kirby), Maggie McKenna (Lydia Rife, Heathington).

Granbury record – 6-8-1.
