There was no denying the kept going off the momentum after Friday's match where sophomore Ashley Arnes scored a career-best two goals along with senior Ari Mendez's goal in the second half to solidify the win. 

“Despite field conditions and other factors, we connected well and had some good moments in front of the goal,” TSU head soccer coach Lindsay Vera said. “We were a little unlucky at times, but our heads never went down.” 

Vera noted how this weekend's results were a team effort as were the 4 points that TSU earned. 

“We're looking forward to our preparation for Alabama this week, after some much-needed recovery.”
