#12 Trinity Women's Soccer Scores SCAC Shutout Victory

San Antonio - The 12th-ranked Tiger women's soccer team shut out Texas Lutheran University for the second time this season with a 5-0 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference victory Friday night.

MATCH SUMMARY

Trinity controlled play most of the game, dominating the scoring chances with a 33-1 advantage in shots taken - including a 20-0 clip in the first half of play.

The game's opening goal came in the 18th minute, following a shot off the crossbar by Trinity's Chelsea Cole.  Texas Lutheran tried to clear the ball out of the six-yard box, but scored an own-goal instead for the eventual game-winner.

It took until the 31st minute for the Tigers to get on the board again, as Colleen Markey crossed the ball from the left side and Julia Camp raced into the box to find the end of it for a 2-0 Trinity lead at the half.

Julia Kelly opened the second half scoring with a rocket shot from nearly 30 yards out, benefitting from a layoff pass from Lilah Bevins in the 59th minute.

Markey picked up her second assist of the night with her cutback pass from inside the six-yard box in the 81st minute, as Katie Peth redirected the pass into the empty net to put Trinity up 4-0.

In the 84th minute, Emily Welp took an Abby Blackwood pass and fired in a goal from just outside the 18-yard box to finish off the night's scoring.

 

NOTABLES

The Tigers won their 12th consecutive game and registered their fourth shutout in a row. Trinity now stands at 12-1-0 and 8-0-0 SCAC, while Texas Lutheran dropped to 5-7-1 and 5-3-1.

Julia Camp's goal was her ninth this season, and the 41st of her career.

Colleen Markey registered multiple assists for the third time this season. Markey leads the team with 12 assists, and upped her career total to 32. She moved into a tie for sixth place in Trinity's record books.

Paige Wallace combined with starting goalkeeper Kalli Douma to earn the combined shutout, which was preserved by Wallace's second-half save - the only shot of the night by the Bulldogs.
