Bobcats, Coach Conner take 150th win


Coach Kat Conner and the Texas State soccer team won their 150th game Aug. 30, keeping the shutout streak alive with a 5-0 win against Prairie View A&M.

Texas State was committed to taking as many shots as possible. The team got two shots on goal within the first five minutes and 17 shots in the first half. Senior forward Gabbi Cottee was the first to strike. Her header from the corner kick by junior forward Tori Hale was the first goal of the game and her second of the season.

Minutes later sophomore midfielder Landry Lowe assisted Lynsey Curry to her second goal of the season. Lynsey Curry did not waste much time after the first goal as she scored her second of the night and third of the year with eight minutes left before the half to put the Bobcats ahead, 3-0.

Soccer looks to gain momentum against Prairie View A&M, Oklahoma

The Texas State soccer team takes on Prairie View A&M, a team the Bobcats defeated in all six of their previous meetings, for the first home game of the 2013 season.

“Any team we can shutout continuously is a good thing,” said senior goalkeeper Natalie Gardini. “As a goalkeeper, my goal is to shutout a team, so it’s always a good thing.”

Prairie View A&M comes to San Marcos winless on the season after losing to Lamar in a nail-biter Aug. 23 and Incarnate Word Aug. 25. As both teams go into Friday’s game after tough losses, Texas State is looking to keep their confidence at a high level.
