#14 Tiger Women's Soccer Finishes SCAC Weekend Sweep

Sherman, Texas - The 14th-ranked Trinity women's soccer team wrapped up its Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference road swing with a 9-0 shutout of Austin College Sunday afternoon.



The potent Tiger offense was on display from the start, as Trinity scored five goals in the first half - including three scores in the first 13 minutes of action.

Meredith Licata scored the eventual game-winner on a header in the seventh minute, assisted by Hannah Booher.

Licata and Madee Gallagher teamed up to find Julia Kelly in the 12th minute to make it 2-0.

Chelsea Cole headed in a cross from Colleen Markey less than two minutes later, and the Tiger offense was off and running.

Julia Camp scored again in the 26th minute, burying a loose ball in the box into the back of the net.

With just over seven minutes left before halftime, Cole knocked in her second goal of the half on a double-assist from Kristen Canepa and Lilah Bevins to give Trinity a 5-0 halftime lead.

Licata punched in the ball from six yards out in the 56th minute, as Camp and Emily Welp provided the assists.

Abby Blackwood buried a 20-yard shot in the 71st minute to make it a 7-0 Tiger lead on a helper from Markey.

Blackwood then assisted Halleanne Dure on the next Trinity score, which was a shot from 15 yards out in the middle of the field in the 76th minute.

Hannah Bishop capped the prolific offensive outing for the Tigers in the 88th minute, scoring from 22 yards out.

Trinity stands at 9-1-0 overall and 5-0-0 in SCAC play, while Austin College dropped to 3-7-0 and 2-4-0 SCAC.
