Denison, Texas - The Trinity Tigers remained undefeated with a 4-0 shutout of the University of Dallas Lady Crusaders in a non-conference game Sunday afternoon.

Senior midfielder Brianna Young scored two goals on Sunday and added two assists. Young scored in the 21st minute, assisted by junior defender Danika Wright, and made a solo goal in the 81st minute. Young assisted sophomore forward Abigail Loar in the 18th minute, and then provided the assist for first-year midfielder Samantha Atkins in the 35th minute.

Young leads the team in points with 12 (four goals, four assists) and Loar has 11 (five goals, one assist).

First-year goalkeeper Katie Garrett recorded her fifth shutout, and has allowed only one goal in six games.

The Tigers overwhelmingly led Dallas in shots, 34-0, and held a 16-0 advantage in shots on goal. Trinity was awarded 12 corner kicks and the Lady Crusaders had none.

Trinity will host Our Lady of the Lake University at 8 p.m. next Friday.
