The College Station High School Lady Cougar soccer team dropped a tough match Thursday against Pflugerville Weiss, 1-2, at the Dripping Springs Invitational.

Weiss had the strong wind at their back in the first half, and they took full advantage of it, scoring both of their goals in the first period.  One goal came from a corner kick, and the other was in the run of play following a nice combination play.

Despite having several more chances in the second period than they did in the first, the Cougars were unable to score until less than five minutes remained in the match.  Lauren Hanik placed a corner kick right in the area where Olivia Fox was able to replay it into the air.  Zoe Bullard found the ball with her head and knocked it into the back of the net.

College Station (2-2) will face Boerne Champion Friday morning at 9 am at Dripping Springs High School.
