MSU: Women's Soccer Notches 5th Shutout

Midwestern State appeared on the brink of scoring goals in bulk Sunday afternoon.

But the difference came on the Mustangs' first shot of the match in a 1-0 win over Texas Woman's University in Lone Star Conference play at the MSU Soccer Field.

"We're playing good soccer, but we're not getting results. Sometimes it's just not good enough to play good soccer. We've got to finish," MSU coach Jeff Trimble said. "You can't will that, but you can certainly have some accountability and expectations for it. We need to score goals."

The Mustangs dominated run of play controlling a 24-6 edge in shots placing 12 on frame for the second straight game.

"We're close, but how many games can you be close to scoring a bunch of goals," Trimble said. "All I can ask is what we're getting -- create shots on goal and hopefully good things are going to happen."

Sophomore forward Ashley Cottrell converted her seventh goal of the season taking advantage of Tatyanny Griffith's swift redirect of senior forward Emily Saville serve from the short left wing in the game's fourth minute to provide the difference.

It was the beginning of a great match for Saville, who hit the crossbar twice in the second half -- on a brilliant header in the 67th minute then drove another shot from just inside the box in the 89th minute.

Sophomore Kensli Pounds also added to MSU's dangerous mix up front placing four of her eight shots on goal.

Senior Kallie Essary made two diving saves to notch her fifth clean sheet of the season as the MSU defense limited TWU to six shots.

"Kallie is playing very well for us. I'm very proud of her," Trimble said. "She's keeping us in games, the midfield is playing hard."

The Mustangs hit the road to face West Texas A&M Friday night in Canyon before taking on Eastern New Mexico Sunday in Portales.

Texas Woman's fell to 4-9-2 on the season and to 1-5-1 in league play.
