Texans drop first match of the season at Lamar


BEAUMONT – An incredible start to program history by the Tarleton women’s soccer team hit its first hiccup on Sunday. The Texans suffered their first loss at the hands of Lamar in Beaumont, 5-1.
The Cardinals jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first half while holding a 9-3 advantage on shots during the first 45 minutes.
Sydney Rouillard got the Texans on the scoreboard when she found the back of the net in the 50th minute, but the comeback task was too tall. Lamar added another goal over the final 40 minutes to pick up the 5-1 win.
Avery Harr led the Texans accounting for two of the team’s five shots on goal in the match.
Tarleton returns to the raucous Tarleton Soccer Complex against Alcorn State Friday at 6 p.m. CT. Friday’s game is also Kid’s Night, with a postgame autograph session scheduled.
