HOUSTON - The University of Houston soccer team closed out its weekend with another tally in the win column as the Cougars defeated the McNeese State Cowboys 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at Robertson Stadium.

The win improves Houston 2-4 on the season and drops McNeese State to a 1-4-2 record.

McNeese State was able to garner the first point of the game in the 42nd minute of the first half. Assisted by freshman Megan Rogers, junior midfielder Alana Clark shot the ball into the left corner of the net, tallying her second goal of the season.

After play resumed in the second half, Houston defender Jessica Rathweg salvaged the game, netting both a free and a penalty kick.

Sophomore forward Jessica Zavalza drew the first foul in the 65th minute, giving the Cougars an opportunity to get on the board with a free kick. Aiming at a heavily guarded goal, Rathweg fired the ball high into the corner of the net.

Nine minutes later, freshman forward Morgan Vela drew the second foul, allowing Rathweg to battle McNeese keeper Cassandra Read one on one in a penalty kick. With ease, Rathweg sent the ball sailing into the net as Read did little to stop it.

"It was pretty exciting," Rathweg said. "I was so happy I could deliver for my team. It was a good team effort, and I didn't want to let them down. We both fought really hard, and they brought a lot to the field."

Rathweg's two goals were her first and second of the season as they doubled her career total.

The Cougars will begin their five-game road campaign next Friday, Sept. 18 against Stephan F. Austin in Nacogdoches, Texas at 7 p.m. CT.
