A local girls soccer team, Lightning, is rallying around a teammate who was seriously injured in a car accident on July 21.

Paisleigh Wood, 8, is currently at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth. Wood had surgery on Tuesday. She has multiple internal injuries and a back injury.

Wood lives in Comanche but has played with the Stephenville team since she was 4.

“All the girls are very close and it is very upsetting for them to see their teammate so helpless,” said Crystal Rose.

The team will hold a fundraiser at Pet Supplies Plus in Stephenville from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. today with a lemonade and cookie stand.

There is also a GoFundMe page.
