By UWS News, Monday, June 17, 2019

Monday, June 17 - Elite Field, Round Rock Texas - The Houston Aces took one more step to clinching the regular season title in the UWS Southwest after a dominating 5-1 road win over FC Austin Elite.

In the previous match between the two teams, FC Austin (0-3-0) held the potent Houston (5-0-0) offense to only one goal but the defending UWS champions were not to be denied in this game. Stephanie Garcia opened the scoring after a deft display of skill, dribbling through the Elite defense and firing her shot inside the right upper 90 past goalkeeper Liz-Amanda Brown. Paige Hayward broke up a pass and fed Tatiana Ariza in on goal who finished over Brown for the 2-0 lead. Ariza tallied her second goal of the match in the second half after a failed clearance from a corner kick. She beat Brown to the ball and her flick-on header put the visitors up 3-0. Hanna Rozzi scored the first goal on the Aces this season on a back post header on a corner kick for the 3-1 score. Jennifer LaPonte and Joannie Ramos completed the scoring for Houston.
