Texas Gets First Win, 3-0 over Toledo

Post by admin » Sun Aug 26, 2012 9:15 pm

AUSTIN, Texas - After suffering back-to-back one-goal losses, The University of Texas Soccer team rebounded Sunday against Toledo by earning a 3-0 victory. Senior Kristin Cummins tallied the game-winner at the 39:09 mark off an assist from freshman Sydney Shutter. In the second half, freshman Lindsey Meyer and sophomore Allison Smith added the insurance with their first goals of the season.

The win against the defending Mid-American Conference Tournament champion Rockets evened the Longhorns' record at 2-2-0. The victory also ends a run of six-straight one-goal decisions by Texas. With the loss, the Rockets dropped to 1-3-0 on the season.

Toledo did not attempt a shot in the first half and finished the contest with only four. Texas sophomore goalkeeper Ava Vogel recorded her second win of the campaign and her first career shutout. She tied her personal best with two saves in the effort.

The Longhorns recorded the first threat of the match nearly nine minutes in as they earned consecutive corner kicks, but did not register any shots. At the 28:18 mark, Cummins took the first shot, but the attempt went wide left. The opportunity opened up the Longhorns' offense as they had three more shots and two more corner kicks in the next five minutes. Sophomore midfielder Sharis Lachappelle and junior defender Brenda Saucedo each had their chances blocked and freshman midfielder Chantale Campbell had her shot sail high over the goal.

With less than eight minutes remaining in the half, freshman Kelsey Shimmick forced Rocket goalkeeper Kelsey Borowitz to make the save, but Borowitz could not stop Cummins' shot moments later from outside the 18-yard box at 39:09 as it found the back corner of the goal. It was Cummins' third score of the season.

The Longhorns broke the match open in the second half with goals from Meyer and Smith. At 68:31, Smith took a corner kick and Meyer headed it into the back of the net. It was the first goal of Meyer's career and the first off a corner kick for the team this season.

Less than three minutes later, Smith registered the final goal of the contest with a left-footed shot past Rocket goalkeeper Sam Tiongson. Senior Hannah Higgins was credited with the assist on the play, her second of the year and 11th of her career. She is just two helpers shy of entering the program's top-10 list. At 76:25, freshman defender Emilie Campbell nearly made it a 4-0 advantage with a point-blank shot on goal, but Tiongson came up with the save.

Toledo had one final shot, at 84:26 by Geri Siudzinski, but the attempt sailed wide left, allowing Vogel to preserve the shutout.

The Longhorns return to action next weekend as hosts of the Time Warner Cable Texas Invitational. UT takes on No. 11 Virginia Friday at 7:30 p.m. Central with television coverage provided by Longhorn Network. Prior to that match, SMU plays New Mexico at 5 p.m.

Post-Match Notes
- Texas did not allow any Toledo shots in the first half. It is the 14th time in program history a foe has not recorded any shots in a half and the first time since Baylor did not have any in the second half of the Oct. 31, 2008, contest.
- In the last two first halves, the Longhorns have surrendered just one shot.
- For the year, Texas has outshot its opponents 65-29 and holds a 22-10 advantage in shots on goal.
- UT prevented a three-match losing streak with the victory. The Longhorns have not dropped three-straight decisions in the same season since starting 2001 with three consecutive defeats.
- The three-goal outburst also prevented Texas from being shut out in three-straight games. The program has not suffered three consecutive shutouts since Sept. 24-Oct. 8, 1999.
- The victory gives Texas its second of the season over a 2011 NCAA Tournament squad, as the Longhorns opened the campaign with a 3-2 overtime victory over Dayton.
- The goal by freshman Lindsey Meyer was the squad's first off a corner kick this season. The Longhorns have taken 31 corners to their opponents' 14.
- Senior Kristin Cummins has scored the game-winning goal in Texas' last three victories.
- Sophomore defender Whitney Jaynes made her first appearance of the season during the first half. Freshman defender Brinkley Field earned the first playing time of her career in the second half.
- Of the 22 players on the Longhorns' active roster (freshman goalkeeper Abby Smith is in Japan for the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup), 21 played in today's game. Junior goalkeeper Alejandra Eljuri was the only Longhorn who did not enter.

With most websites including UT's own dominated by pointy ball, who are on the UT Women's Soccer Coach List.

Petrucelli, 1997-2010
Kelly, 2011-Current

List if you know them even prior to NCAA; assume the team had played as a UT club like today's mens program.

Before Petrucelli, the coach was Dang Pibulvech (1994-1999).
For the first year of the program, the coach was Eric Zobrist (1993). I believe Zobrist was the club coach before the program was elevated to varsity. His appointment was understood as an interim one.
