Trinity Shuts out Birmingham-Southern Friday


Birmingham, Alabama - The fifth-ranked Trinity University Tigers women’s soccer team remained undefeated with a 3-0 shutout of the Birmingham-Southern College Panthers Friday in a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference game.

Trinity improved to 8-0-0 and registered its third straight shutout. Birmingham-Southern dropped to 6-5-0. The Panthers’ games do not count in SCAC standings because they are in transition from the NCAA Division I to Division III.

Tiger senior midfielder Brianna Young scored one goal and accounted for two assists. Young scored the only goal of the first half, in the 31st minute, with an assist from sophomore forward Abigail Loar, who had two assists. It marked the sixth goal of the season for Young, and her fourth game-winner.

Sophomore midfielder Dana Carter put in a goal in the 48th minute. Loar picked up her second assist of the game, and Young her first.

Kelly Watts, a sophomore forward, scored in the 53 minute, as Young provided the assist.

First-year goalkeeper Katie Garrett had one save in the game.

Trinity led Birmingham-Southern 12-4 in shots, and 8-1 in shots on goal. The two teams tied 2-2 in corner kicks.

The Tigers, 1-0-0 in SCAC play, continue their conference schedule Sunday at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss. Game time is 2 p.m.

Brianna Young scored her fourth game-winning goal of the year, scoring in the 31st minute of Friday's win at Birmingham-Southern
