Women’s soccer picks up another shutout
SEGUIN, TX — Freshman Kayla McConnell lofted a shot over the goalkeeper’s head in the sixth minute of Sunday’s road match at Texas Lutheran and that turned out to be the game-winner as freshman Taylor Roberson recorded another shutout in a 1-0 win.
The two teams were pretty even but it was McConnell’s shot and another strong effort by Roberson and the Mountaineer defense that proved to be the difference in a battle for seeding heading into the SCAC Tournament.
Roberson had five saves in recording her fifth shutout of the year as more Schreiner Women’s Soccer team records fell on the day. With the win, SU has 10 on the season which ties for the NCAA era school record and Roberson pulls into a tie for most shutouts in a season as well.
The Mountaineers play a make-up for Friday’s postponed contest at Southwestern looking to run their win streak to four. Match time is at 6 p.m.
Men’s soccer unable to find the back of the net

SU had 17 shots while the Bulldogs had 18 and both squads had six shots on goal. Junior goalkeeper Blake Lawson recorded six saves in earning the shutout. Freshman Robert Hensley had half of the Mountaineers’ shots on goal.
SU now travels to Georgetown on Tuesday for a make-up match with Southwestern that was postponed from Friday due to heavy rains. The match is set to start at 8 p.m.
