Cougars fall for the second time

TCU defeats Houston despite Cougars out-shooting Horned Frogs

Cougar Sports Services

The University of Houston soccer team saw its first loss at home after Texas Christian University claimed a 3-1 victory. 

Despite the Cougars (1-2) out-shooting the Horned Frogs 15-9, UH couldn't finish what it started and allowed TCU (2-2) to pick up its first road win.

"I'm sick to my stomach because I know we outplayed them," head coach Bill Solberg said in a press release. "I know we dominated.

"We had more shots. In the long run, we just need to finish. We have to capitalize on the opportunities that we do have."

Kristin Bay gave UH its first and only goal of the afternoon after Sophia Mundy's corner kick at the 13th minute mark.

"It's very promising the way that we are playing and how we're dominating," Solberg said in a press release. "The intensity that we played with today, I think we're going to be in contention for every game."

TCU tied the score in the 33rd minute mark when midfielder Ginny Hubbard managed to shoot the ball over UH goalie Stephanie Pucek's head. The Horned Frogs' K.D. Walters gave TCU its second and leading goal after kicking the ball from 25 yards away.

Moran Lavi found Lauren Pope, who shot TCU's third and final ball past Pucek. 

Despite the effort by Cougars Mundy and Sarah Fisher to keep battling and put more goals on the scoreboard in the 74th minute mark, TCU won it all.

The Cougars will return to Robertson Stadium on Friday to play Sam Houston State in the third of six straight home games. Action will begin at 7 p.m.

"Sam Houston (State) has a tough program," Solberg said in a press release. "They come out and really work hard.

"They will try and out work us, so we'll have to step up to that challenge this weekend."
