It was a good night for the TCU womens soccer team as they picked up a quality road win in Houston beating Rice 2-0.  Monica Alvarado notched both goals in the second half.

The night did not always look so good for the Lady Frogs though.  Rice took early control of the match, firing five shots towards the net in the first 14 minutes of the game. TCU narrowly escaped falling behind when Lauren LaGro's shot ricocheted off the crossbar. The battle continued in the goal box and Vittoria Arnold hauled in Holly Hargreaves shot to stop the Owl momentum.

Heading into halftime, Rice held a 10-4 advantage in shots and Arnold had made a pair of saves to keep the match scoreless.

"At the half we talked about things we saw and things we thought we could exploit. I thought they went out and executed what we talked about," said Bell. "Everyone worked hard and it was a well-earned win. This was a team win. It wasn't just Monica and Makenzie. I thought Vittoria played an awesome game, as well."

TCU was much better in the second half and took the lead as Monica Alvarado headed home a corner kick in the 55th minute of play.  Rice fought hard trying to find the equalizer, but Arnold was there to make back-to-back saves on Hargreaves and Lauren Hughes in the 58th minute.

TCU fed off the Arnold saves and pushed the ball downfield, eventually earning another corner kick in the 69th minute. Koch's prowess from the corner proved beneficial once again as she connected with Alvarado's head for a 2-0 TCU lead.

The Lady Frogs improve to 2-1-1 on the season. The Frogs return home for a Sunday afternoon soccer contest against Nevada.
