Kayra Dollas scored for Texas as the Longhorns soccer team remained undefeated, drawing 1-1 with TCU in double overtime at Myers Stadium Friday night.

With the result, Texas matched the longest unbeaten streak in Longhorns soccer history at 13 games. The 2006 Longhorns also didn’t lose in 13 straight contests.

TCU (9-4-1, 3-1-1 Big 12) scored in the second half to tie the game and force overtime, but neither team broke through in extra time.

Karitas Tomasdottir tied the game in the 85th minute, spoiling a chance for Texas goalkeeper Nicole Curry to take a team record ninth clean sheet of the season.

“I think we could have come out a little bit better prepared mentally, but overall I think that we did all right,” Curry said of the performance.

Curry tied for the most shutouts in a season in program history already. She has plenty of chances to get to nine before the season is done.

Dollas made the first breakthrough of the game, scoring on a header off a corner kick in the 36th minute. It was her second goal of the season. Emma Jett provided the assist on the play.

Texas (11-0-2, 3-0-2) held a 16-14 edge in shots and put five shots on goal to TCU’s two. Katie Glenn led Texas with five shots, two of which were on goal. Emma Heckendorn also had five shots to lead TCU.

The result was the Longhorns’ second straight tie and they’ll look to get back in the win column next Friday when they travel to Lawrence to take on Kansas.
