The Highland Park girls soccer team continued its quest to make a return trip to the state tournament on Friday when it knocked off Frisco 2-1 in the Class 4A Region II sectional round in Richardson.

Hope Hyde and Megan Uhr scored the goals for the Lady Scots (19-4-1), who won their 11th consecutive game. Jordan Hill scored the only goal for the Lady Raccoons (22-3), as Frisco fell to HP in the sectional round for the second straight year.

The Lady Scots advance to the regional quarterfinals, where they will meet Forney, which knocked off Wylie 2-1 on Friday. Those teams have a history as well, as HP defeated Forney 2-1 in a season-opening tournament in February at Highlander Stadium.
