HOUSTON – The University of Houston football program scored another win of the season on Thursday with a 3-0 win over Lamar at the Carl Lewis International Complex. The Cougars have improved to 4-0-1 over the season, which is their best start since 2016.
Goalkeeper Mikaela Gracia secured her second straight goal with her impressive performance on the net by knocking out the Cardinals (1-3-0). This is also her second goal of the season. Similar to her appearance on Sunday, in 90 minutes on the net, she shot a parade.
Redshirt freshman Nadia Kamassah, assisted by PhD student Zionah Browne, wasted no time getting a score on the board. The couple worked together to meet within the first minute of the game. Kamassah has now scored two goals of the season after taking her maiden overtime win at McNeese.
Redshirt senior Mia Brascia saw a total of 81 minutes of play, adding to her 309 total minutes in the last four games. She also added an assist to her season stats that helped senior Emma Clarke with the second goal of the game in the 47th minute shortly after half-time.
Browne later added another assist to her record when she passed the ball to sophomore Janna Singleton, who scored the game finisher and her first goal of the season at the end of the 86th minute. Singleton made their Houston Soccer debut against the Houston Baptist on Sunday.
Houston was able to stop Lamar from scoring a goal, leading to their second consecutive 3-0 shutout that season.
