Seguin, Texas – The 18th-ranked Tiger women's soccer team remained unbeaten in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play with a 5-0 shutout win over Texas Lutheran University on Sunday.
It marks the third time in the last four games that the Tigers have scored in the first seven minutes of the game.
Kaity Ward nearly made it 2-0 a few minutes later, but her shot went off the crossbar to keep it a one-goal game.
Trinity had two more shots in the second half (15) than the first (13), but the Tigers were unable to score until the 67th minute. Anna-Kate Coker found Alana Wickham to give Trinity the 4-0 advantage.
Luli Martinez had a goal in the 80th minute to cap the day's scoring, as Bowers earned the assist. Martinez nearly added another score with under two minutes to play, but her attempt went off the cross bar and the game ended 5-0.
The Tigers improved to 11-2 overall and 5-0 in conference, while Texas Lutheran dropped to 7-6-1 overall and 2-3 in SCAC play.
Cassie Bowers supplied her third goal of the season in the first half of play, as well as recording her first career assist on the game's final goal.
