LUBBOCK, Texas — Senior forward/midfielder Haley Berg paced the offense with a career-high nine shots and the Longhorns outshot their hosts, but none of the shots Berg or her teammates took reached the back of the net as the Texas soccer team ended the 2020 fall season with a 1-0 loss at Texas Tech’s John Walker Soccer Complex.

The loss ended the Longhorns’ season with a record of 4-5-0; Texas Tech picked up just its second victory of the season, improving to 2-4-2. UT’s lead in the all-time series shrunk to 16-9-4; the Longhorns and Red Raiders now have gone 6-6-0 in 12 games played in Lubbock.

The Horns not only enjoyed an advantage in shots, but also held a narrow 6-5 edge in shots on goal … but it was Tech forward Kristen Davis whose goal in the 54th minute turned out to be the game’s only tally. 

The highlight of the 2020 season was the Longhorns’ 7-0 hammering of Kansas State, but outside of that game, UT struggled in the offensive end, scoring just four goals combined in the other eight games in 2020.
