The forward intercepted an attempted cross out of the Lady Braves' box and scored in third minute to give Terrebonne a 1-0 lead. Guin would add another goal later to lift the Lady Tigers to a 4-0 win at Tom B. Stadium.

"Terrebonne has been the district champion for many years," H.L. Bourgeois coach Bruno Habasque said. "If you make a mistake against them, they make you pay for it. (Friday nigh) we made too many mistakes."

H.L. Bourgeois' Faylee Sokolowiski was inches away from tying the match, but her shot sailed wide righjt.

Terrebonne (4-6 overall, 3-0 in district) responded in a matter of moments, as its ensuing attack was knocked out of bounds by the Lady Braves (6-1, 1-1 in district). Sarah LeComeptes' corner kick was deflected by an H.L. Bourgeois defender, and Guin sent it into the goal for a 2-0 lead with six minutes left in the opening half.

"We had a couple of set pieces and corner kicks that went well for us," Terrebonne coach Ray LeCompte said. "H.L. is a good team, and we knew we'd have to take advantage of those situations to get a win."

The Lady Tigers capitalized on a penalty kick in the 14th minute of the second half. Kristie Champagne connected with Jolie Cantrelle on an arching shot to give Terrebonne a 3-0 lead.

Hallie Bergeron rounded out the scoring with a goal in the 24th minute of the second half. The Lady Tigers finished with 22 shots on goal.

"We wanted to keep the presser on them," LeCompte said. "We missed some shots early, and their goalie had some great saves. But we moved the ball around well and did what we needed to do."

H.L. Bourgeois finished with three shots on goal.


At Tom B. Smith Stadium in Houma, Terrebonne goalie Ross Breaux fended off 21 scoring attempts spurned by a relentless H.L. Bourgeois attack.
