FORT WORTH, Texas --- New Mexico women's soccer tied TCU Sunday in a double overtime scoreless draw. The Lobos tied their third consecutive match and returns from the road trip with a 6-4-3 overall mark and 0-0-2 in conference play. UNM dominated the Horned Frogs (5-6-2, 0-1-1) throughout the match. The Lobos outshot TCU, 23-8, and had seven corner kicks compared to three.

"To have the toughest road trip in the conference, I'll take two ties," said UNM head coach Kit Vela. "The girls played with a lot of heart and soul this weekend. We have a lot to hold your heads up about after out playing both opponents. It's always tough to play on the road but to walk away with two ties isn't bad."

UNM found multiple scoring opportunities Sunday, firing 23 shots with nine on goal. Seniors Bridgette Sanchez, Kristine Sweat and Kaela Kelly led the attacks. Sanchez and Sweat both had five shots against the Horned Frogs, while Kelly added four.

The Lobos continued to play well defensively and have only allowed three goals in the last six matches. UNM held TCU to eight shot and only four on goal. Sophomore Shannon Adragna recorded her fourth shutout of the year and collected four saves in 110 minutes.

The next match for UNM is scheduled for Oct. 13 in Las Vegas, Nev., against UNLV. For more information about Lobo athletics visit www.GoLobos.com.
