Alicen Wright made her season debut on Friday and made five saves in a tough-luck 2-1 loss to the Mustangs. Brittany Slyman and Koch briefly tied Monica Alvarado for the team lead in goals, but it was short lived as Alvarado notched her third in the second half against Texas State.

HOUSTON BAPTIST NOTABLES
Natalie Hager, the team's leading goal scorer with five, potted a pair of goals in the win over NWLA. Lindsay Matlock knotted the game at one in the 74th minute on Sunday, picking up her first goal of the season. Shelby Horn tallied 13 saves and allowed just two goals in the two matches this past weekend.
She notched her team-leading fourth assist on Sunday, feeding the ball to Brittany Slyman for what proved to be the game winner. She added an insurance goal later in the half, converting on another penalty kick.
In addition to her scoring touch, Koch is the go-to person to take corner kicks. She has taken 26 of 31 (84%) corners this season.
On the season, Koch has four assists, which is tied for the most in the Big 12. Her average of 0.57 assists per game tops the league.
