Pearland Downs Rider, Palo Duro in Frisco ISD Tourney

The Pearland varsity girls, ranked #10 in the TASCO Region III Pre-Season Poll, traveled to Frisco for the Dr. Pink Tournament and left the competition a little blue.  After opening with a 5-0 loss to Frisco Wakeland, Pearland quickly got on track. In the second match of the 2013 Frisco ISD Dr. Pink Tournament, Pearland took on Amarillo Palo Duro.  Pearland dominated possession from the opening whistle prodding and probing the Palo Duro defense.  In the 20th minute, Riane Smith latched onto a Heather Valentine cross to give Pearland the lead.  As Pearland continued the pressure, Ashley Romeo broke through the defense to slot home a second goal in the 39th minute.  Pearland continued to dominate possession and in the 60th minute, Aaron Simmons snuck in at the back post to finish the scoring off a cross from Victoria Alaniz.  Pearland finished the match with 24 shots, 14 on target.  Palo Duro were held without a shot for the entire match.  Pearland followed this result up with a 1-1 tie with Richardson Pearce.

In the Final match of tournament Pearland faced Wicihita Falls Rider, ranked #3 in the TASCO Region I Pre-Season Poll.  Rider controlled the possession early, but were caught out on the counter in the 24th minute when Aaron Simmons floated a cross to the back post, which was met by Kaylie Rainwater for her first varsity goal.  Pearland started to take control of the game and eased into halftime.  After the break, Rider came out with a lot of energy and were justly rewarded with a goal in the 42nd minute.  As the game wore on, Pearland started to take control of the possession.  In the 62nd minute, Christina Collins weaved into the area before being taken down.  Ashley Romeo converted from the penalty spot to give Pearland the lead.  Rider pushed for the equalizer late, but Pearland’s defense held strong for the win.
