ABILENE, Texas — On the coolest day of the fall so far in Abilene, with a strong north wind, the Hardin-Simmons women's soccer team beat Austin College, 4-0, in non-conference action at the HSU Soccer Complex.
The Cowgirls played against the 20-25 MPH wind in the first half and despite a huge advantage in possession led just 1-0.
HSU, who outshot AC 30-1 in the game and 13-1 on goal, came out strong in the second half. Taylor Thigpen had a nice centering pass to Megan Ryan who delivered her second goal of the season to make it 2-0 at the 49:18 mark.
Becca Roth and Haley Martin each played in goal for the Cowgirls. Maya Warnock had nine saves for Austin College.
The Cowgirls have won 13 straight and are now 13-1 on the year. Austin College fell to 6-6 overall.
HSU closes its regular-season home slate with games against Texas Lutheran and Schreiner on Friday and Saturday at 1 p.m. at the HSU Soccer Complex.
