AUSTIN, Texas – A goal from Texas Tech’s Dawn Ward in the 58th minute lifted the Red Raiders to a 1-0 victory over Texas on Friday evening inside Mike A. Myers Stadium and Soccer Field. Ward took a deflected shot from freshman Janine Beckie and pushed a ball past Texas freshman goalkeeper Abby Smith, who finished the contest with a career-high eight saves.
The loss was Texas’ (6-7-1, 3-1-0 Big 12) first since a 1-0 setback at Utah on Sept. 8 and snapped a five-game unbeaten streak. The goal by Ward was also the first allowed by the Longhorns in 353:24, since Denver’s Kristen Hamilton scored at 84:13 to tie the match at 3-3 on Sept. 16
