Emma Regan’s penalty kick was the only score for Texas (11-7-1) in the shootout against goalkeeper Emily Alvarado. But TCU (10-6-3) connected on all three of its kicks to advance to the semifinals Friday against Texas Tech. Yazmeen Ryan, Grace Collins and Maddy Warren were successful on their shots.
Three UT starters missed the game because of injuries: midfielder Julia Grosso, forward Mackenzie McFarland and midfielder Carlee Allen.
