Buccaneers shutout Bulldogs in first half
BRENHAM, Texas — On Tuesday night at Rankin Field, No. 9 Navarro College scored twice in the second half to grab a 2-0 win over Blinn College women’s soccer (3-5, 2-4).
“I am really disappointed that a couple of individual mistakes took the win away from us because our overall performance tonight was good,” said Michael McBride, Blinn head coach. “Hope Hillhouse was great out there. Her position, kicking and communication were all good.”
On defense, Hillhouse and Abigail Ritter each recorded five saves, while Karson Funderbunk led Blinn on offense with four shots.
After a scoreless first half, Navarro scored in the 55th minute to take a 1-0 lead. In the 68th minute, the Bulldogs scored their second goal to take a 2-0 advantage.
