DALLAS — The Waxahachie Indians had a couple of good opportunities to score in the second half, but came up short in a 2-0 loss to Rockwall-Heath on Tuesday night in the area round of the Class 6A Region II boys’ soccer playoffs at Forester Field.
The Indians finished 14-10-1 overall, but not before recording their first bi-district playoff victory at the 6A level.
Rockwall-Heath scored a goal in the first half on a cross and left-footed volley on the bounce with just under 15 minutes remaining, and the Indians went into the locker room with a 1-0 deficit.
In the second half, the Tribe had chances to equalize twice as Luke Villarreal and Landon Gilmore each had a shot on goal, but each attempt was saved. The Hawks added an insurance goal late in the second half.
Rockwall-Heath (11-8-5) advanced to the Region II quarterfinal and was scheduled to face Duncanville on Friday night at Forester Field.
