FT. WORTH, Texas – Texas Wesleyan used a flurry of second-half goals to get past St. Gregory's, 3-1, Tuesday night in both teams' conference opener at Martin Field. The Lady Rams won their fourth straight overall, while the Cavs dropped their second consecutive game.
The teams battled to a scoreless tie through 45 minutes, but TWU came out firing after intermission. The Lady Rams outshot the visitors, 15-4, in the second half – netting goals in the 50th, 56th and 71st minutes to go up 3-0. TWU's Drea Molina, who came in with five goals on the season, was responsible for two of those scores.
SGU avoided the shutout when Beth McHale connected on a long-range score off a free kick – something she's done with regularity this season. The 84th-minute goal was her career-best fifth of the season.
SGU (4-4, 0-1 SAC) resumes play Saturday at home against Southwestern Christian. Game time is set for 1 p.m. at Fr. Victor Roberts Field.
