Lady Hawks outlast Lady Cardinals on penalty kicks

HARLINGEN — After a scoreless full-time game and two extra time periods, Harlingen South found a way to win.

Down to the six kicker in a penalty shootout, Adia Hurtado was able to put some power behind her kick and give the Lady Hawks a crucial 0 (3)-0(2) win and a much-needed two points in a tough District 32-6A contest Tuesday night at Boggus Stadium.

But perhaps the biggest player on the night was goalkeeper Alicia Rodriguez, who came up save after save.

“Alicia is a super goalie,” said Harlingen South head coach Omar Pedroza. “Against Brownsville Lopez earlier in the year, she made some big saves and tonight she did the same.

“We practice penalty kicks, but again tonight it came down to the sixth person.”
