Denver, Colorado – The 17th-ranked Tiger women's soccer team generated a 3-0 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference shutout on the road against Johnson & Wales (CO) University on Friday evening.
Trinity held a 15-4 advantage in shots in the game, as well as a 6-2 edge in corner kicks in the game; however, it was Johnson & Wales that had the first scoring chance.
The Wildcats got a shot after a corner in the fifth minute of play, but the attempt missed wide left.
Ward then played the role of helper on the next goal, crossing the ball from the right side for Jessica Young. That came in the 21st minute and Young's goal gave Trinity a 2-0 lead after the opening period.
The Tigers upped their season record to 12-2-0 overall and remained undefeated at 6-0-0 in conference play. Johnson & Wales dropped to 4-12-0 overall and 2-5-0 in the SCAC.
Kaity Ward tied for the team lead with her sixth goal of the season, as well as tying four other players for the team lead with her second game-winner of the season. She also moved into a tie for second with her fifth assist of the year.
Trinity will continue west to take on California Lutheran University on Sunday, October 27, at 11:00 a.m. (PT).
