In two games, both teams won a game scoring a total of 3 goals.
Tonight was time for the Brighton Cardinals and Munford Cougars to settle the score. The 80 minutes of regulation wasn’t enough time. In overtime, the Cougars prevailed 1-0 to win the 2016 District 13-3A Tournament championship.
The goal came at the 8 minute- 1 second-mark of the first overtime period by Wilmer Martinez. The defense of Cougars like Juan Pena, Max Sneed, Brady Tiner, Dalton McCann and Robert Savage helped Munford keep the Cardinals scoreless.
Now the Cougars will host the Region 7-3A Semifinal Tuesday night against the loser of Cordova vs. Bartlett from District 14-3A.
