MIDLAND -- Frenship opened the Class 6A playoffs in dominant fashion Thursday, rolling past El Paso Americas 8-0 at Grande Communications Stadium.

Junior Madalyn Hoel scored five goals for the 13th-ranked Tigers, (19-2-2).

Samantha Vasquez spearheaded a clamp-down defensive effort, with Lexi Jackson and Anja Hopf combining for a shutout in the goal.

With the victory, Frenship advances to the area round next Monday or Tuesday where it will take on the winner of a bi-district match between Euless Trinity and Arlington Lamar.
