H.S. Soccer: Palestine Ladycats win district, beat Diboll 8-0; Boys beat Diboll 2-1




“We have a solid defense, too,” he added. “We only gave up six goals in district, which is 10 games. That’s pretty good defense right there if you can do that.”

The Palestine boys also played on Tuesday night and had a solid 2-1 win against the Lumberjacks.


The goals for Palestine were scored by Adrian Rodriguez, who blew past a Diboll defender and held him off as he tried to get back into position and then Rodriguez drilled a shot past the keeper for the goal, and Brandon Fierro who scored on a penalty kick with 9:07 left in the match.


The Wildcats gave up only one goal on an otherwise strong defensive night including goalkeeper Bennett Gierkey’s performance.
