North Texas Blanks Cajuns To Remain Perfect In SBC Play

LAFAYETTE, La. (9/24/06) In a very physical match the North Texas women’s soccer team fought its way past Louisiana-Lafayette 2-0 at the Cajun Soccer Complex. The win extends the Mean Green’s (6-2-2, 2-0) unbeaten streak to five straight games and keeps North Texas perfect in Sun Belt Conference play.


“It was a very physical match but Heather and Kelli really stepped up when we needed a goal,” said North Texas head coach John Hedlund. “It nice to be 2-0 in conference play, especially with both of the wins coming on the road”.


The first half of the match was scoreless as both teams had five shots, but in the second half the Mean Green took control of the game.


Starting in the 60th of play junior Heather Hutyra notched her fourth goal of the season off a free kick to make it 1-0 North Texas. Sophomore Kelli Lunsford added an insurance goal, her third of the season, in the 72nd minute off a deflection in front of the Cajun net.


Junior Kandice Ellis made five saves on the afternoon to pick up her fourth shutout of the season. North Texas outshot Louisiana-Lafayette 18-9 in the game.


North Texas returns home for two matches, beginning with Florida International on Friday, September 29 at 7 p.m.
