Trinity Records Shutout Win Over Texas-Tyler Sunday
San Antonio - The seventh-ranked Trinity Tigers women remained undefeated with a 7-0 shutout of the University of Texas-Tyler Patriots on Sunday afternoon.
Trinity (6-0-0) also recorded its fourth straight shutout of the season. Last Friday, the Tigers began the weekend with a 2-0 victory over Texas-Dallas.
First-year midfielder Emily Jorgens scored two goals in the game, bringing her season total to five. Along with her team-best seven assists, Jorgens now has 17 points.
Jorgens' first goal of the day, which was the eventual game-winner (her second of the campaign), was a solo shot in the ninth minute. She also scored the final goal of the game, in the 81st minute, and was assisted by first-year forward Stephanie Segovia.
Segovia accounted for Trinity's second goal, in the 34th minute, on an assist by first-year midfielder Hannah Kuhl. For the season, Segovia has a team-leading eight goals, and has chalked up two assists, for a Tigers-best 18 points.
Senior forward Kelly Watts scored less than three minutes after Segovia, and was assisted by junior midfielder Lauren Henderson and sophomore midfielder Michelle Lanier. Henderson then gave Trinity a 4-0 lead, in the 41st minute, on an assist from junior midfielder Samantha Atkins.
Junior forward Annie Kendzior scored less than four minutes into the second half, with senior All-America forward Abby Loar supplying the assist. Junior midfielder Katy Lipscomb put one past the goalkeeper on a penalty kick at the 50-minute mark.
Trinity overwhelmingly led UT-Tyler 39-3 in total shots, and held a 17-3 advantage in shots on goal. The Tigers also picked up seven corner kicks, to only one for the Patriots.
Goalkeepers Katie Garrett and Devan Osegueda combined for the shutout, recording three total saves.
The Tigers travel to Georgetown, Texas, next Sunday for a noon game with UC-Santa Cruz at Southwestern. The next home game will be Friday, Sept. 23, when Trinity hosts Our Lady of the Lake, from San Antonio, at 7 p.m.
