The Texas State soccer team, led offensively by Lauren Prater, junior forward, will enter Friday’s match against the Little Rock Trojans with a five-game winning streak.
With Sara Small, Trojans senior goalkeeper, leading the defense, Little Rock finished its non-conference schedule with a 0-0 tie against the University of Texas.
Prater was awarded the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Student-Athlete of the Week after scoring three goals against Lamar.
Small, meanwhile, received the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week as a result of her shutout. With both teams in good form, it should provide for a compelling conference opener.
Assistant Coach Link Scoggins said he knows the team is confident but it’s a matter of creating chances.
