No. 6 Trinity shuts out Panthers, 3-0
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The No. 6 Trinity University women’s soccer team shut out Birmingham-Southern, 3-0, Friday evening at Panther Stadium. The Tigers remain undefeated at 8-0 on the season, while the Panthers fall to 6-5.
Trinity did not score its first goal until the 31st minute, when Abigal Loar took a shot that was deflected by BSC sophomore goalkeeper Amber Hernandez, and Brianna Young collected it and scored to put Trinity up 1-0.
The Tigers took the 1-0 lead into halftime, but found the net again less than three minutes into the second period when Loar scored, assisted by Young and Kelly Watts.
Less than five minutes later, Watts put the Tigers up 3-0 courtesy of an assist from Young. Neither team would find the net for the remainder of the game, and Trinity collected the 3-0 victory.
Hernandez played the first 69 minutes of the game and made four saves before she was replaced by senior Ruth Hanks, who made one save in 21 minutes of play. Katie Garrett spent all 90 minutes in the net for Trinity to pick up the shutout, recording one save.
Trinity out-shot BSC 12-4, but also picked up 18 fouls to the Panthers’ six.
BSC is back in action on Sunday, taking on Southwestern University at 1 p.m. at BSC Soccer Park.
