The Lady Guard of Brook Hill shut out Colleyville Covenant Christian, 3-0, Saturday in the TAPPS Division III state championship match, which was played at Awty International High School in Houston on Saturday.
The win was pay back for the Lady Guard as the Lady Cougars had chalked up wins of 2-0 and 3-0 over Brook Hill in district play during the regular season.

What shots that did get through were handled by goal keeper, Hayden Langemeier, who picked up a clan sheet victory in the title match.
Brook Hill (14-5) led 2-0 at intermission.
A Morgan Moss goal on an assist from Kennedy Rose but Brook Hill on the board first.

Brook Hill's defense and goal keeper allowed just one goal to be scored during post season play.

Those young ladies included, Rose, Moss, Assad and Wells.
