NACOGDOCHES - The Stephen F. Austin Ladyjack soccer team was victorious Friday afternoon in their scrimmage at the SFA Intramural Complex. SFA defeated the Houston Challenge, 1-0.
The game consisted of three 25-minute periods and was scoreless through the first period. The defensive struggle continued in the second period as the game remained scoreless until the 49:02 mark. Sophomore Kendra Cannon (Kilgore, Texas) ended the shutout when scored an unassisted goal from 15 feet out.
