Pine Tree midfielder Arian Martinez and Lindale forward Uriah Shipman scrap for the ball in the second half of the Pirates' penalty kicks win Friday at Tyler Junior College.

TYLER -- Goalkeeper Justin Groves kept Lindale standing toe-to-toe with Pine Tree through 100 minutes of game time Thursday at Tyler Junior College's Pat Hartley Complex.

Groves made nine saves and shut down seven realistic scoring opportunities to help District 16-5A's fourth seed force a 0-0 draw with the first seed from District 15-5A in the bi-district round of the Class 5A state playoffs.

In penalty kicks, however, the Pirates overcame a missed first shot to down the Eagles 5-4 in six rounds and advanced to the area round, somewhat putting a first-round loss in penalty kicks last season against Jacksonville to rest.
