No. 20 Missouri pushes past TCU
Sept. 23, 2007
COLUMBUS, Mo. - TCU scored two second half goals, but it wasn't enough as No. 20 Missouri upended the Horned Frogs, 6-2, Sunday at Audrey J. Walton stadium.
In the first half, sophomore Michelle Nguyen looked to put TCU on the board early in the match, but had her shot saved by Tiger goalkeeper Mallory Forst.
Following two Missouri goals by Katya Hessel, TCU sophomore Chelsea White tried to connect from inside the box, but watched as her shot sailed high.
After the half, MU's Alysha Bonnick increased the Missouri lead to 3-0, but Jackie Torda brought the Horned Frogs back, netting her fifth goal of the year off an assist from Cheryl Martin in the 59th minute.
Torda looked to tie the ballgame a minute later, but watched as her shot hit the post. Senior Angie Nickens was there to follow Toda's miss though, beating Forst in the 60th minute to bring TCU within one late in the contest.
Missouri closed out the game scoring three-consecutive goals to put a halt to the TCU comeback.
Overall, TCU recorded 10 shots for the match, including seven in the second half. Torda, who recorded three shots on the day, including two on goal, led the Frogs on offense Sunday afternoon. Junior Courtney Johnson, who almost netted a goal late in the contest, chipped in with two on the day.
With the loss, TCU moved to 3-5-0 on the year, while Missouri improved to 6-2-0.
TCU will next be in action Sept. 28 against Colorado College. Start time is set for 7 p.m. in Fort Worth.
