Oct. 8, 2015
FORT WORTH - The TCU women's soccer team returns to action Friday night at nationally-ranked Texas Tech. The Red Raiders mark the second-straight ranked opponent for the Horned Frogs.
• TCU saw its four match winning streak come to an end with a 2-1 loss at No. 3 West Virginia in its only match last week.
• With a goal and an assist in the game, TCU has tied the 1990 team for the fifth-most points scored in a season. That squad finished the season with 34 goals and 20 assists for 88 points.
• WVU’s goal in the first two minutes of the game snapped TCU’s shutout streak at 363:53.
• Michelle Prokof picked up an assist to give her 20 points on the season, tying her with Cindy Rappe (1990) for the 10th most points scored in a single season.
• Despite allowing two goals in the WVU game, Shannon Coffer still leads the Big 12 with a .871 save percentage and ranks second with a 0.43 GAA.
TEXAS TECH NOTABLES
• Texas Tech enters the match undefeated in its last 11 matches. The Red Raiders are 7-0-4 in that stretch.
• The Red Raiders are still searching for their first Big 12 victory this season after playing to ties at Oklahoma (0-0) and at Oklahoma State (2-2).
• Janine Beckie is the top offensive threat for Texas Tech with five goals, three assists and 49 shots.
• In goal, Lauren Watson has seen the bulk of the action, starting all 12 games. She boasts a 0.62 GAA and an .862 save percentage.
SERIES HISTORY NOTABLES
• TCU and Texas Tech will be meeting for the 24th time on Friday. The Frogs lead the series 11-9-3.
• Texas Tech has dominated the series of late with a 6-0-1 record in the last seven meetings.
• Since renewing rivalaries as conference foes, Texas Tech is 2-0-1 in the regular season and 1-0 in the conference tournament.
• TCU is 5-4-1 in Lubbock. The Frogs last win in the series was a 3-2 victory in Lubbock in 2008.
TCU has won eight of its last 10 games and has done so in dominating fashion. Over the last 10 matches, the Horned Frogs have outscored their opponents 27-4. The Horned Frogs have scored four goals in a match four times, marking the first time since 2010 that a TCU team has accomplished that feat when they did it five times.
The offensive onslaught by the Frogs has them already ranked as the fifth-best offensive team in school history. TCU has 88 points (29 goals, 30 assists) tying the 1990 squad. The 30 assists are the third most in a season for a Frog team.
CLIMBING THE CHARTS
With an assist at West Virginia Michelle Prokof continued her assault on the TCU record book. Already tied for fifth all-time in goals scored with 21, she moved within one point of Jackie Torda’s sixth-place total of 50. Additionally, her next goal will move her into a tie for fourth with Jennifer Thompson (1992-95).
Her nine goals this season are a career high, bettering her total of eight from her freshman year. She leads the Big 12 and is tied for 18th nationally with the nine goals.
NO GOALS FOR YOU
The TCU defense has been quite stingy over the last nine games, allowing just four goals while posting seven shutouts over the last 10 games. The school record for shutouts in a season is eight set in 1988 and 2012.
