AUSTIN, Texas - In their first match of the season, an exhibition, Texas soccer defeated Abilene Christian at Myers Stadium 3-0. Scoring goals were senior Carlee Allen, junior Sydney Nobles and freshman Holly Ward.

Three hundred and fifty fans came out to Myers Stadium and watched Texas take eighteen shots with nine on goal, nine corner kicks, and get eight fouls. UT Athletic Director Chris Dell Conte was at field-level and Olympic Gold Medal winner Julia Grosso arrived from Vancouver, BC in time to be with her teammates.

Freshman midfielder Lexi Missimo provided one assist, three shots and one shot on goal (SOG) that was good, but there was an off sides flag that cancelled the score.

I like exploring the why's and have three objectives. First is to give value to those who would spend time with our content. Second is to be respectful of others and for the opportunity to tell a positive story about all of the Texas Longhorns teams, players, and coaches regardless of their record. Lastly, to put wind in the sails of others using the Horns Illustrated platform. Life is GOOD!
