Texas soccer team snaps Big 12 losing streak, defeats Texas Tech 2-0

Posted October 21st, 2016

Texas senior Jasmine Hart scored twice to give the Longhorns their first conference win of the season, a 2-0 shutout of Texas Tech Friday night at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

The win broke Texas’ four-game losing streak to conference opponents. Texas (8-7-1, 1-4-1) moved up to seventh place in the Big 12 with two conference games remaining. Texas Tech (8-6-2, 1-5-0) has lost four straight conferences matches.

Hart, who is second on the team with four goals, put Texas ahead in the 24th minute when she got a crossing pass from Katie Glenn on the right edge of the penalty box and headed it past Texas Tech goalie Lauren Watson.
