    No. 9 TCU soccer handed first loss of the season by No. 6 FSU, 2-0

    The TCU Horned Frogs battled through a defensive match with the Florida State Seminoles in their second game of the season.

    FSU’s Taylor Huff took a shot from 25 yards out that found the back of the net for the first goal of the match. It would be the deciding goal.

    Three minutes later, the Seminoles added some insurance with a goal from Onyi Echegini in the 73rd minute, making it 2-0.

    The couple of goals came after the two teams battled physically and defensively through the first half, ending the first 45 minutes with one shot on goal each.

    Horned Frog goalie Lauren Kellett lunged to knock away an early shot attempt from the Seminoles.

    TCU had 57% of the possessions, but the Seminoles were focused on defending the Frogs and waiting for an opportunity to score. FSU’s Ameilia Van Zanten and Jordynn Dudley held the pressure on the Frogs.

    Van Zanten, a midfielder, halted any attempts for the Frogs offense to pick up momentum and even drifted to the other side of the ball, taking a shot. Forward Dudley took two shots on goal and joined FSU’s Ran Iwai and Huff in being given a yellow card.

    TCU’s Brenna Brosam and AJ Hennessey were both given yellow cards during the match, as well.

    Head coach Eric Bell said tonight’s matchup was very physical and is proud of the fight TCU put up against Florida State.

    “We had a worthy opponent, we just didn’t see the right side of the scoreboard tonight,” said Bell. I was really proud of the way we battled, fought and competed. Obviously we have some things to clean up, but credit to them for putting two goals by us.”

    Bell added that the team has film to watch and work to do, but it’s early in the season.
