Longhorns launch offensive barrage against A&M Corpus Christi

Head coach Angela Kelly wanted to see her team play at a higher tempo and put the ball in the back of the net against A&M Corpus Christi and Montana.

Kelly got what she wanted Friday as the Longhorns (4-0-2) launched a 6-0 barrage against A&M Corpus Christi to remain unbeaten this season.

The Longhorns did not get on the scoreboard until a free kick by senior defender Brooke Gilbert found junior midfielder Lindsey Meyer eight yards from goal at 32:58 into the match, but a five-goal second half alleviated any concerns about the Texas attack.

The Longhorns carried the momentum back home Sunday with a 2-0 win against Montana. The Longhorns launched 23 shots to Montana’s six and kept fantastic possession in their opponent’s territory. A second-half penalty kick by Gilbert and a long goal in the final minute by junior forward Chantale Campbell drove the offense.

Texas’ next competition comes this weekend at the USF Soccer Classic in Tampa, Florida, with a game Friday at 3:30 p.m. against Central Florida and a matchup Sunday at 10:30 a.m. against South Florida.
