Goalkeepers Keira Herron and Mackenzie Martin and the College Station defense played well enough to defend Adi Palacios ‘late goal for a 1-0 win over Waller in the district 19-5A girls’ game at Cougar Stadium on Saturday.
With eight minutes remaining, College Station’s Shaley Lewis played a ball for Sarah Del Rio near the penalty area. Waller broke off the attack for a moment, but Palacious got loose, hit two defenders and hit with a low shot out of the goalkeeper’s reach.
Adriana Wagner, Reagan Bethke, and Lauren Hanik led the Lady Cougars’ defense efforts.
College Station (14-4-2, 9-2) will play in Brenham on Tuesday.
