Foster had the game-winning extra point Friday night in her school’s 13-12 overtime victory over George County High School. She kicked two field goals earlier, giving her a majority of the team’s points.

Primarily a soccer player, Foster’s been kicking with the football varsity since she was a sophomore. She became the first female to score a point for Ocean Springs last year. She’s also got the quick-change down — she’s been a member of the homecoming court for four years.
