“Very pleased with our players and how we found pockets and the type of possession we had,” head coach Angela Kelly said on the team’s Twitter page. ” We created a lot of opportunities. Overall it’s a W in the column and we’re going to move forward.”

The Longhorns trailed in the first half before clamping down on the Bobcats defensively.

Kaylee Davis put Texas State (2-5) up 1-0 on a goal in the 16th minute, assisted by Sydney Kammer and Renny Moore.

“We really didn’t have to say too much,” Kelly said about the second half defense. “We just had to remind them that this is our home field and we have to do better the second half.”

Texas didn’t allow a shot in the final 45 minutes, 22 seconds of the match.

Nicole Curry picked up the win by making one save as the Bobcats took just four shots overall.
