Kilgore High School’s scrimmages are over, and it’s time for soccer season.
The Lady Bulldogs finished up with a 5-3 scrimmage win at Sulphur Springs on Monday, and they’re at home all weekend, beginning Thursday, with their own tournament, here at R.E.

The rest of Thursday: Tyler Legacy faces Chapel Hill at 3, Sulphur plays Nac at 4:30, and Kilgore comes back in action for the nightcap Thursday at 6 against Abilene Wylie.
On Friday, Kilgore plays just once: at noon against Chapel Hill. The Lady ‘Dogs play once on Saturday, as well: at 1:30 against Tyler Legacy. See the complete schedule on the sports section on kilgorenewsherald.com.
