Second-Half Scoring Burst Leads #3 Trinity Past Southwestern

Georgetown, Texas - The third-ranked Trinity women's soccer team rallied to beat Southwestern University 3-1 in a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference match-up Friday night.



Southwestern shocked the Tigers with a goal in the 17th minute of play on a free kick in the box, taking the 1-0 lead into halftime.

It didn't take long for Trinity's offense to equalize after halftime, though, as Brigitte Taylor scored on an assist from Colleen Markey after less than three minutes.

Southwestern committed a foul in the box, and Yasmeen Farra converted a penalty kick in the 68th minute for the eventual game-winner.

Late in the game, Trinity stole the ball at midfield, and Farra passed it to Tierney Thomison for another score to seal the victory in the 82nd minute.



The Tigers remained undefeated with a 15-0-0 overall record, and a 9-0-0 mark in the SCAC. Southwestern now stands at 9-6-0 and 7-3-0. 

Tonight marked just the fourth goal allowed in 15 games by Trinity's defense, ending a streak of eight consecutive shutout victories.  

The last goal allowed by the Tigers came against the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (TX) on September 20 - a streak of just over 772 minutes of game time.

Yasmeen Farra produced her 10th goal and fourth assist of the season in tonight's win, and she is tied for the Tiger lead in goals scored.  Farra is now tied for 24th in school history with 23 career goals.

Farra now has a team-best four-game winners to her credit, including the second in a row. 

Brigitte Taylor and Tierney Thomison each scored a sixth goal of the campaign.  Taylor has now scored 18 career goals for the Tigers.

Colleen Markey has assisted on five scoring plays this season, and has a total of 18 assists in her career.


The Tigers continue their SCAC weekend Sunday in Seguin, Texas, by taking on Texas Lutheran University at 2:00 p.m.
