Dominic Dungca scored a pair of goals against Shoemaker on Friday, the second of which came with two minutes to play and gave Killeen its first district win of the season, 2-0, at Shoemaker.
“It’s great because we’re kind of on a losing streak there and the kids believed in themselves,” Killeen head coach Aaron Bragewitz said. “They kept plugging away, plugging away and finally got that first one.”
Dungca’s first goal put Killeen up 1-0 in the 46th minute.
The Roos (3-6-1, 1-3 8-5A) seemed to be in the clear before Shoemaker knotted the score with five minutes to play.
Dungca’s second goal three minutes later, however, gave the Roos the close victory.

NO. 18 SALADO 73, ROGERS 56:At Rogers, 18th-ranked Salado upped its District 22-2A record to 13-0 with a win over Rogers.
For Salado, Kole Hearne scored 17 points, Dane Hankamer 11 and Kyle Heiner and Preston Rosebrock each scored 10.
“We played OK,” said Salado head coach Kenny Mann. “There was a small crowd due to the weather. There was a long halftime due to their parent night and I don’t think we came out that strong in the second half. But, overall, we did what we needed to do.”
