The Aledo Bearcats took the Area Championship tonight after winning a shootout following two scoreless overtime periods against Wichita Falls High School at Collins Stadium in Denton.
The regular game ended in a 1-1 tie. After the overtime failed to settle the game, it went to a shootout, where goalie Justin Breshears stopped shot after shot. One of five got past Breshears, but two of Aledo's five shots ended up in the WF net, giving Aledo the victory.
The Ladycats fell 5-1 in their area championship game, also against Wichita Falls High School.
The Bearcats will next face Argyle at a time and place to be determined.
