It may have taken overtime, but the McKinney North Lady Bulldogs are moving on in the UIL 4A Girls Soccer Playoffs.
After playing to a 1-1 tie versus Frisco Centennial through regulation at McKinney Boyd High School, North and Centennia played one overtime period Tuesday night without a goal being scored. In the second overtime, with 2:30 remaining, Belicia Mendiola made the second of her two goals on the night to give the Lady Bulldogs the 2-1 Bi-district round win and avoid a penalty kick shootout.
Mendiola scored her first goal of the match in the first half to give North a 1-0 lead at halftime. Centennial would tie the match in the second half to send it to overtime.
North will face Carrollton Creekview in the Area round on Thursday at The Colony High School, beginning at 6 p.m.
