TCU Soccer extends winning streak with a 1-0 win over OSU

The Horned Frogs snapped the Cowgirls’ undefeated run in the Big 12 Conference.

The unbeaten run continues.

TCU extended their five-game winning streak after defeating Oklahoma State on Sunday at Garvey Rosenthal Soccer Stadium 1-0.

The Horned Frogs took advantage early in the first half as mid-fielder Oli Pena intercepted an OSU pass and gave the ball to forward AJ Hennessey.

She shot from outside the box and found the top right corner of the goal.

The Cowgirls’ goalkeeper, Grace Gordon, only conceded two goals in their last five games. She recorded 32 saves before the match in Fort Worth.

In the first half, the Frogs controlled the possession of the ball, continuously trying to anticipate attacks from the Cowgirls. This allowed head coach Eric Bell’s team to manage the rhythm of the game and preventing Oklahoma State from even taking a shot in the first half.

“They were a little bit more direct than they have been in the past, which put pressure on our back line to win balls but more importantly to win the second ball,” said Bell. “I thought we did a really good job of doing that.”

Not much changed in the second half.

TCU controlled the ball and OSU tried counterattacks as much as possible. Sunday afternoon games have been a serious challenge for TCU and their rivals.

And the temperature is not dropping, Bell pointed out.

“Another hard-fought Sunday match in the heat. I’ve been waiting for the weather to break and it hasn’t, which is making it really, really hard in these 1 p.m. Sunday matches,” he said. “I’m really proud of our group. We fought and got a really good goal by AJ (Hennessey) and saw the game out to the end.”

TCU’s goalkeeper Lauren Kellett collected her sixth shutout of the season and 26th of her career. She played all 90 minutes on Sunday to help TCU keep their eight-game winning streak in Big 12 play.

The victory put the Frogs in second place in the Big 12 standings.

Afterwards, the players celebrated with a post-game autograph session with their fans.
