Trinity Blanks UT-Dallas Sunday Afternoon


San Antonio - Trinity's women's soccer team remained undefeated with a 4-0 home victory over the University of Texas-Dallas Comets Sunday afternoon.

Trinity (4-0-0), which scored all four goals in the first half, registered its fourth straight shutout of the season. UT-Dallas dropped to 0-3-2. Last year, Trinity won on a double-overtime goal by sophomore forward Abigail Loar in the 102nd minute.

Loar has now scored in all of the Tigers’ games during the season. She scored the second goal of Sunday’s game, in the 10th minute, with an assist from senior midfielder Brianna Young.

The first of three quick Tiger goals came in the seventh minute from sophomore midfielder Allyson Hunter, who fired in a solo shot. Following the goal by Loar, senior forward Bekah Gabay received a corner kick from junior forward Jordan Azar in the 12th minute. First-year midfielder Samantha Atkins scored in the 32nd minute, with the corner kick assist from senior midfielder Alex Leamy.

Tiger first-year goalkeeper Katie Garrett had one save in the game. UT-Dallas freshman Katelyn Flory was the starter, allowing three goals and one save in 11 minutes, 12 seconds of play. Junior Andrea Jones played the final 78:48 and allowed one goal, along with getting seven saves.

Trinity led 24-5 in shots and held a 12-1 lead in shots on goal. The Tigers led the Comets 9-3 in corner kicks.

The Tigers open their SCAC campaign next Friday with Austin College in Sherman, Texas. Next Sunday, Trinity plays at the University of Dallas in a non-conference game. The Tigers return home Friday, Sept. 25, to host Our Lady of the Lake University of San Antonio, at 8 p.m.
