Cotter’s girls soccer team avenged an earlier loss Thursday, beating Dover-Eyota 1-0 in Winona.
When the two Three Rivers Conference foes met up in Eyota on Sept. 6, it was the Eagles that came out on top 1-0, though the Ramblers (8-2 overall, 5-2 conference) defended their home turf in the rematch.
A pair of captains lifted Cotter to victory, as junior Ava Killian scored off an assist by senior Allyssa Williams for the game’s only goal.
Sophomore goalkeeper Bella Kaiser made four saves, not a massive amount of shots to defend, but it was a quartet of stops that head coach Marie Barrientos described as “well-timed” to secure the shutout victory.
