Winning ways

Foster girls varsity soccer team pictured after beating Angleton 6-0 Tuesday.

The top two teams in District 24-5A met at Wildcat stadium with Foster visiting Angleton on Tuesday.

Only one team was left standing atop the district with Foster securing a 6-0 victory.

The Lady Falcons started hot when Hannah Bolin found Angelica Bochus for a volley past the keeper and a 1-0 lead just two minutes into the game.

Foster kept up the attack and forced several saves before Jenay Garcia fed Angelica for a nice goal to make it 2-0.

Foster got a break with 15 minutes left in the first half when Sydne Bunce connected with Samantha Doherty for a one time volley and a 3-0 halftime lead.

In the second half, the Lady Falcons kept the pressure on but struggled at times in the slick conditions.

Angleton looked for long balls to its front striker but the Lady Falcons defense held strong. Thirteen minutes into the half, Angelica spun off a clumsy tackle and hit the back of the net to complete the hat trick on the night.

The rest of the game was a back and forth affair. Angleton had a decent shot at Foster’s goal but Grace Shivers’ reaction save cleared it wide.

Foster scored two more off similar situations when the Wildcat keeper mishandled a shot.

The first was credited to Abrie Morales and the second to Doherty for a brace. The Lady Falcons defense organized and stymied every Angleton attack for their 7th consecutive district shutout.

The Lady Falcons host Terry on Friday at The Nest as they look to finish the first half of district play undefeated.
