Trinity Women's Soccer Earns Lopsided Victory

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.

GAME SUMMARY

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.

The 17th minute saw Cole score her second of the game, with Emily Welp delivering the assist. Welp assisted on another goal just over three minutes later as Kaity Ward made it a 3-0 Tiger lead.

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.

Hannah Lane assisted on Madison Horner's score that started a flurry of goals, then Abby Blackwood and Tori Schott added unassisted goals to give Trinity a 7-0 Trinity lead at the break.

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.

 

NOTABLES

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.

 

UP NEXT

Trinity will finish off its SCAC weekend by hosting Centenary (LA) College on Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
