The Ruston High School Lady Bearcats dropped a home match on Saturday to West Monroe by a final score of 2-0 after giving up two first half goals to the Lady Rebels.

“Today wasn’t our day,” Ruston head coach Jacquelyn Bean said. “They’re a good, talented team, and we were tested really well today. We came back after half-time and held them to 0-0 in the second half, we had chances but had no luck. My girls fought to the end but they were also fighting fatigue from playing Pineville only a day and a half ago and the Saturday am game time was tough to overcome. We found a new depth of our energy tank. My girls never backed down and kept pushing until the final whistle to create chances.”

Ruston soccer begins the 2023 district slate on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at home for a 5:30 p.m. match start.
