#21 Tiger Women Blank Schreiner Behind Super Seniors

San Antonio - The 21st-ranked Trinity women's soccer team won its 12th straight game with a 7-0 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference shutout of Schreiner (TX) University Friday night.


Tiger seniors Halleanne Dure and Chelsea Cole provided all seven of Trinity's goals on a record-breaking night that featured two hat tricks.

The scoring began in the 11th minute, which started with Dure's shot on goal that was saved and fell to the feet of Cole.  Cole took her own shot at the net, but clanged it off the post and right back to herself. She then finished off her first goal of the night that turned out to be the game-winner.

Cole needed just 22 seconds to score her second, then finished off her hat trick with another score in the 13th minute that put the Tigers up 3-0.

Dure converted a pass from Cole into another score in the 32nd minute and Trinity led 4-0 at the half. 

After the break, Dure and Cole hooked up again just 1:35 into the second period, then Cole provided her third assist of the night in the 52nd minute when Dure completed a hat trick of her own. 

Less than four minutes later, Dure tied a school record with her fourth goal of the evening.

Trinity led 30-6 in total shots and 19-3 in shots on the mark.



The Tigers improved to 13-1-1 overall and 12-0-0 in SCAC competition, while the Mountaineers dropped to 4-5-2 and 3-8-1 SCAC. Trinity beat Schreiner 3-0 on September 25 in Kerrville, Texas.

Halleanne Dure is the fourth Trinity player in school history to achieve the Tiger record of four goals in a game, with the last being Chelsea Cole against Austin College earlier this year. Today's game marks the third hat trick of the season for the Tiger senior.

Dure has scored 16 goals this season and has moved into the top 10 in school history with 39 goals in her career.

Cole's hat trick came in a span of 91 seconds, which is the fifth-fastest hat trick in Division III history, and the second-fastest in SCAC history. Her two goals in just 22 seconds is tied for #14 in Divisiion III history for the fastest consecutive goals by the same player.

Cole leads the team with 19 goals and has chalked up 50 during her Trinity career, which is seventh in school history. Her nine points in the game are the most by a Tiger player since Jennifer Wray had three goals and four assists (10 points) against Millsaps in 2005.

Goalkeepers Paige Wallace and Tara Lujan combined for three saves in Trinity's 13th shutout of the season.



Trinity concludes its regular season home schedule next Tuesday by hosting Southwestern (TX) University in another SCAC matchup at 8:00 p.m.
