The 2022 Soccer Season is off and running for the majority of the valley. The La Feria Lionettes have kicked off their 2022 campaign. After a great season last year, La Feria looks to build upon that success this season. The Lionettes finished the 2021 season with an overall record of 9-4 and a district record of 6-2. Finishing the number two seed in District 32-4A, The Lionettes punched their ticket to the Area Round where they suffered a big loss against Calallen. So here’s what to expect and look forward to this season.

The Lionettes kicked the season against the Pace Lady Vikings. In a key defensive battle throughout, The Lady Vikings managed to strike first and dominate in the second half to capture their first win of the season, handing La Feria their first season loss.

So, what does the rest of the season look like? The Lionettes will face off against Raymondville in a rematch of last season’s Bi-District round. After they will take on Progreso before kicking off District play against IDEA Frontier on January 25th, Then The Lionettes face off against Port Isabel on January 28, Brownsville Jubilee on February 4th, and Harmony School of Innovation out of Brownsville on February 8th. Key Matchups include the Riverview Lady Rockets on February 11 then Rio Hondo to wrap up the first half of district play on February 15. The second half of district play will kick off on February 18 against Frontier.

Last Season, The Lionettes swept the season series against Riverview and Port Isabel, split the season series against Jubilee and Rio Hondo. In arguably a tough district in Valley Soccer. The Lionettes look to capture their first wins in the non-district calendar as look to capture not only a district title but a ticket to the playoffs.
