First-Half Outburst Leads #12 Tigers Past Dallas

 Irving, Texas – The 12th-ranked Trinity women's soccer team notched a 4-0 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference road win over the University of Dallas on Friday afternoon.



All of the scoring action came in the first half of play, as Trinity netted all four goals in the first 45 minutes and held a 15-0 advantage in shots at halftime.

The Tigers wound up with a 31-0 differential in shots, but were held scoreless in the second half despite six shots on goal.

Colleen Markey sent in a cross from the left side of the field in the 10th minute of action, and Hannah Booher scored the eventual game-winner.

Booher then lined up a corner kick in the 30th minute, and Julia Kelly buried a header for the first of her two consecutive scores.

Kelly's second goal was an unassisted score just over two minutes after her first, putting Trinity ahead 3-0 at the time.

Halleanne Dure finished off an outburst of Tiger scoring in the 35th minute, while Jordan Bethea picked up the assist.  Trinity's third score in a span of 5:06 proved to be the final goal of the contest.



The victory gives Trinity an 11-game winning streak, running the team's overall record to 11-1-0 this season. The Tigers are 7-0-0 in SCAC play after sweeping the regular season series from Dallas (3-7-2, 2-4-1 SCAC).

Halleanne Dure's score puts her at the top of the team in the category with 13 goals so far this season, and she now has 20 goals scored in her career.

Colleen Markey picked up her 30th career assist, becoming the seventh player in Tiger women's soccer history to reach that total.

Julia Kelly achieved her second multi-goal game of her career this afternoon, both of which have come this season.

Hannah Booher scored her 10th career goal and her 15th career assist, but the game-winning score was the first of her career at Trinity.



The Tigers return to action on Friday, October 13, hosting Texas Lutheran University in an SCAC game that starts at 6:00 p.m.
