San Antonio – The Tiger women's soccer team opened up a home weekend of Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play with a 9-0 shutout win over Austin (TX) College.
Chelsea Cole tied a school record with four goals scored in the game, including a hat trick in the first half of play and the eventual game-winner.
Cole knocked in an unassisted goal in the ninth minute of action, beginning a scoring rout that ended up with a season-best in goals scored for the Tigers.
Cole then completed her hat trick with an assist from Katie Peth in the 30th minute.
Trinity was far from done in the opening period, though, as three different Tiger players added goals in a span of less than five minutes before the end of the half.
Less than three minutes into the second half, Cole netted her record-tying score on a penalty kick.
Schott finished off the scoring with her second goal of the night in the 67th minute, assisted by Lindsey Peng.
Trinity out-shot Austin 43-1 in the game and held a 12-0 advantage in corner kicks.
Trinity improves to 3-1-1 on the year and 2-0-0 in conference play. Austin remains winless on the season at 0-5-0 and 0-2-0 in the SCAC.
Chelsea Cole is the seventh player in Trinity women's soccer history to score four goals in a game, and she is the first to do it since Julia Camp scored four times against Austin College in 2016.
With her four goals tonight, Cole moves to a tie for 11th in school history with 37 career goals for the Tigers. She is now just five points from becoming the 11th Trinity player to score 100 career points.
The multi-goal game for Tori Schott is the first in her career, while Emly Welp also produced her first career multi-assist game.
Trinity will finish off its SCAC weekend by hosting Centenary (LA) College on Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
