The Texas State soccer team took an early lead Sunday and never looked back.
Kira Zapalac, sophomore midfielder, made her mark in the 12th minute by scoring on the first look at goal. Zapalac received the ball at the top of the 18-yard box and was able to turn and attempt a shot.
Stephen F. Austin surrendered an own goal to put the Bobcats up 2-0 late in the first half. Assistant Coach Link Scoggins said the own goal was a testament to the Bobcats’ pressure.
“Our presence and our determination took us to a ball and forced them into a mistake and they paid for it,” Scoggins said.
The mistake was too much to overcome for the Ladyjacks as Texas State went on to win 4-0 Sunday afternoon in Nacogdoches.
