The UVU women’s soccer team faced off against Houston Baptist University on Friday Oct. 16 in Houston, Texas.
After a total of 15 shots and 11 fouls by UVU, and another 12 shots and 13 fouls by Houston Baptist, the game ended in a tie at one goal a piece. Nicole Archibald scored UVU’s only goal in the second period of the game on an assist from Brianne Larsen. Houston Baptist’s goal was also scored in the second period.
The team played yet another game in Texas on Sunday, Oct. 18, when they went against Sam Houston State University. UVU had little good fortune as they lost 3-2.
Katey Turner and Jaime Lyons scored both of UVU’s goals in the second period of the game. Both goals were unassisted.
“They were a strong team but we should have taken better control in the first half,” said sophomore Jaime Lyons. “We missed some good opportunities which we should have capitalized on and waited until the end of the game to really play our game.”
