Campbell County and Brossart played three times in 2012, with each meeting ending in a Mustangs shootout win.
On Wednesday, that trend continued when those teams met for the first time this season as Brossart converted its first four PKs en route to a 1-0 win.
Mustangs senior goalkeeper Sarah Futscher made a save in the beginning of the fifth round. The Camels made their first three kicks but missed in the fourth round.
Four seniors – defender Sam Cetrulo, midfielder Cori Ziegler, forward Morgan Verst and forward Madison Linebach – all nailed their penalty kicks for Brossart.
Futscher turned seven shots aside during the match to earn the shutout, the fourth in the Mustangs’ last five matches.
Campbell County junior Bryanna Schroers stopped 12 shots to pick up her eighth shutout of the season.
In 2012, Brossart beat the Camels, 2-1 in penalty kicks during the teams’ regular-season meeting on Sept. 17, took down Campbell County, 1-0 in the District 37 final on Oct. 11 and won, 2-1 in the Region 10 championship match in the ninth round on Oct. 20.
With the win, Brossart clinches the district title with a 3-0 record, and the Camels finish 2-1 in district play, taking second place.
