The Packers had some late chances, but couldn’t connect.

“We had a lot of shots where we didn’t get lucky,” Austin head coach Josh Dumas said. “But our girls did a good job of maintaining composure against some (questionable) sportsmanship. We played a solid respectful game.”

Abby Gallaher had 10 saves for the Packers, who had 12 shots on goal.
