LA VERNE, CA — Alina Cobian gave the Leopards the lead in the 37th minute and the University of La Verne women's soccer team held on for a 1-0 win over the visiting Redlands Bulldogs Wednesday night.
Following a foul on the Bulldogs, the Leopards set up for a free-kick at midfield. The Leopards passed the ball into the box but it was deflected out by the Redlands defense. A Bulldog defender attempted to head the ball to her teammate but Cobian swooped in and stole the errant pass. The senior then unleashed a shot from the top corner of the box to the opposite corner of the goal.
The goal was the sixth career score for Cobian and the third of the year for the Covina native.
