Trinity Downs Hardin-Simmons in Overtime


San Antonio - Trinity sophomore forward Abigail Loar scored a goal in the 99th minute as the Tigers beat the Hardin-Simmons Cowgirls 1-0 in overtime Saturday in a non-conference game.

Loar, who scored her second goal in as many games, had an assist from sophomore forward Kelly Watts, with 1:47 remaining in the first overtime period. Watts delivered a cross header to Loar – the 2008 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Newcomer of the Year - as the Tigers remained undefeated at 2-0-0. Loar took four shots, all on goal.

The Tigers earned their first victory over the Cowgirls in five meetings. Hardin-Simmons held an 0-2-2 mark over Trinity the past few years. Trinity and Hardin-Simmons met four straight years in the NCAA Division III playoffs, with the Cowgirls advancing three times. Tiger head coach Lance Key now holds a record of 4-3-2 against the Cowgirls.

Trinity outshot Hardin-Simmons 24-7 and held a 15-3 advantage in shots on goal. Tiger first-year goalkeeper Katie Garrett registered three saves and Hardin-Simmons senior Christi Carr had 12.

The Tigers led 5-3 in corner kicks.

Trinity will host UT-Tyler at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, then will take on UT-Dallas at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 13.
