Senior Katie Taylor broke a 1-1 tie with a sparkling free kick in the 73rd minute to give TCU a 2-1 victory over Air Force Friday night in Fort Worth.  A huge crowd of over 2800 packed the stadium and cheered the Lady Frogs to the win. 

"The thing is that we have playing well and I am happy to see the results of our play payoff with a win," TCU head coach Dan Abdalla said. "This gives us some momentum to get going and now we just need to focus on Sunday. I was really proud of the way our team responded after they tied it up in the second half. Some mistakes are going to happen and you are going to give goals up, but I thought our backline played really well tonight. We just had the one slip up, but we didn't give up. We kept the pressure on and we were able to get that second goal. We showed a lot of resiliency in coming back."

CU (7-7-1, 1-2 MW) dominated possession and the shot totals, outshooting Air Force (6-6-3, 1-1 MW), 22-10. Brooke Kviz, Monica Alvarado and Taylor registered four attempts each, while seniors Alex Mechalske and Jordan Calhoun enjoyed three strikes apiece.

Brooke Kviz put the Frogs on the board at the 27:48 mark of the first half. The Keller, Texas native tallied her fourth goal of the season from inside the box off an assist from senior Jordan Calhoun. Friday's match was the second-straight game for Kviz to find the back of the net, who also tallied a goal against Texas Tech Sunday.

After Air Force tied the match up at the 66:37 mark, Mechalske found herself in the box with the ball at her feet again. The senior from Fort Worth dribbled right to avoid an Air Force defender and create an open look at the goal, but her strike sailed high over the goal in the 61st minute. 

It wasn't until the 72:30 mark in the match that Taylor would line up her free kick to win the match. After Air Force took down a TCU player just outside the box, the Escondido, Calif., native bended a blast in the upper-ninety from the left corner to put the Frogs on top, 2-1. The score was the sixth of Taylor's career and the first since striking against Sam Houston State at home on Aug. 29, 2010. It was the first game-winner of her collegiate career.
