SAN MARCOS (9/18/02) - The North Texas soccer team bounced back from it's first loss of the season with a convincing 4-2 win over Southwest Texas. The Mean Green (5-1) were lead by junior Marilyn Marin who had two goals to give her a Sun Belt Conference leading nine on the season.
"It's a big win for us. They are the top team in the Southland Conference and for us to come down here and beat them was nice," said North Texas Head Coach John Hedlund. "We needed a big win on the road like this because we start the conference season on the road and this was a big one for us".
Marin started the scoring off for the Mean Green in the first half with her eight goal of the year. North Texas also got strong play from defender Lindsay Bibb and Michelle Uselton as they both notched goals. Marin finished the scoring off for the Mean Green with her second goal of the night and her third multi-goal effort of the season. Marin also extender her point streak to three straight games.
Freshman goalkeeper Erin Johnson was in net and picked up her second win of her collegiate career. North Texas will next be in action on Sunday at home against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
