Lane and Young are the top two seeds of the Public League City Tournament and the two remain on a collision course after they registered convincing victories in the quarterfinal round at Lane on Saturday.
Sophomore Nicole Vega scored two goals and junior Natalie Wade contributed a goal and two assists as Lane smashed Jones 6-1 in the morning quarterfinal. Lane (12-4-2) won its seventh consecutive game and advances to play Payton in the first semifinal Tuesday at Lane.
"We're starting to come together and play how we want," Wade said.
Sophomore forward Detzi Reveles scored on a header as Lane jumped out to a commanding 3-0 halftime lead. "We started really well and focused, got a little sloppy in the second half and let up a goal, but otherwise, it was a good performance," Wade said.
Lane is expanding its arsenal of scorers. Leading scorer, junior Sofia Pavon, recorded a goal. Sophomore Larissa Seibt contributed her first goal of the year.
Senior Francesca Varias scored for the Eagles (14-2-2).
In the final quarterfinal, senior forward Margaret Zahrah, a captain, scored three goals as Young easily beat previously undefeated Steinmetz 4-0.
Junior forward Andrea Gomes added her team-best 16th goal of the year for the Dolphins (15-4-2), who advance to meet Northside.
Junior Esme Kline recorded two assists for the Dolphins, who jumped out to a 3-0 lead at halftime and were never seriously threatened.
Melissa Valdespia had four saves for the Silver Streaks (10-1-1).
