The Dumas Demonettes played their final home soccer match of the season Friday, March 8, and defeated the Pampa Lady Harvesters on senior night.

It was a tough defensive battle for the early part of the game, until the 23rd minute when Ashley Mendoza put one through and scored the first point of the game. A few minutes later, at the 27th minute, Aylin Perez pushed another score in. At the end of the first period it was 2-0 with the Demonettes on top.

The Demonettes took control of the game at the start of the second period as Dulce Ortiz knocked one through at the 43rd minute.

The Demonettes did not allow a goal to defeat the Lady Harvesters 3-0. The win marks the fourth one in a row for the Demonettes. Additionally, the Demonettes have the potential to take second place in the district.

There is one more district matchup on Friday, March 22, with the Lady Bulldogs of Borger.

Head coach Raphael McHenry said the team is different now.

"It's night and day difference from years previous," he said. "They've finally come together. They're playing like a team, they're acting like a team. It's just finally clicking."

He continued to say he sees confidence in the players and they are using that to their advantage.

The Demonettes sit at 5-3 in district play heading into the final game.

The JV team also play Friday, but struggled to score offensively. The score remained 0 at the half.

In the second period the Demonettes fought, but fell short as the Lady Harvesters scored late in the period. The JV squad dropped the game 0-1 to Pampa.
