WATERLOO — Maddie Burr and Adrianna Gallen scored goals as 13th-ranked Waterloo Columbus edged Aplington-Parkersburg 2-0 Friday in a North Iowa Cedar League girls’ soccer matchup.

The opening half was a back-and-forth draw until a hand ball in the box against A-P resulted in a penalty kick that Burr buried.

Columbus (5-2) protected that 1-0 lead and got an insurance goal from freshman Gallen, her first varsity score, in the final minute.
