Finding out Thursday they will not be playing El Paso High School, the state-ranked No. 7 Aledo Ladycats will instead play El Paso Andress at 5:30 p.m. today in a girls Class 5A regional semifinals match at Memorial Stadium in Wichita Falls.
According to the Aledo ISD athletic office, El Paso’s win over Andress Tuesday in a third-round match was forfeited due to using an ineligible player.
Andress is the fourth-place team from competitive District 1-5A.
“We are playing Andress (today),” Ladycats head coach Bryan Johnson told The Community News.
The winner of the match will play the winner of the No. 9 Grapevine/ No. 3 Lubbock Monterey match. That match will be played prior to the Ladycats/Andress match.
The regional final will be played at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
