Trinity University continued their perfect start on Tuesday night as the number three side managed a comfortable win over Mary Hardin-Baylor at Belton. The Tigers left conference play for one day as they took on a non-conference side and managed a big 3-1 win to stay perfect.
Coleen Markey continued her strong performances for the Tigers as she scored the opening goal after 19 minutes of play. After controlling the ball for much of the early stages, Markey was given too much space, allowing her to finish the opportunity.
After conceding Mary Hardin-Baylor started to tighten up as they looked to defend strongly against the Tigers. That saw Trinity have to look to control possession and force Mary Hardin-Baylor out to create the space for goals.
But Trinity did eventually break through, getting past the Mary Hardin-Baylor defense in the final five minutes of the half. Tierney Thomison and Halleanne Dure linked up well, allowing Dure the space to score the second goal of the match.
Nine minutes in to the second half Mary Hardin-Baylor set up a dramatic half of soccer as they were able to pull a goal back. Kathryn Parker was given too much space, allowing her to bury the chance to make it 2-1 and excite the home fans.
But Trinity quickly took possession back, going for the match try and take it away from the hosts in the final half-hour of the match. And eventually the Tigers were able to pull the match back, scoring in the 71st minute as Yasmeen Farra was able to set up Hannah Booher who also continued her good season as she managed to score another goal, setting up the final score of 3-1.
