NACOGDOCHES -- Jenna McCarty's goal was all Nacogdoches needed to improve to 6-1 in district play with a 1-0 home win against Palestine on Tuesday.

McCarty scored her goal off an Alexandra Stokes assist.

Goalkeeper Savannah Scott teamed with a sturdy defensive unit to help the Lady Dragons notch the shutout.

"The first half we struggled with consistency, but the second half we worked it out and were able to move the ball up the field better and we had more opportunities at the net. We just panicked and could not capitalize," said Nacogdoches coach Gari Dial. "However the girls kept their composure and were able to hang on to a 1-0 lead."

Nacogdoches hosts Center on Friday.

  • The Nacogdoches JV won 4-0. Bayli davis, Abby Hendricks, Amy Balderas, Jayla Powers and Emma Bond were involved in the scoring. Kelley Bridges and Amy Martin combined in the shutout.
