The Texas State women’s soccer season comes to an end following their 1-0 overtime defeat against Troy in the first round of the Sun Belt tournament last night.
The Trojans and Bobcats couldn’t score in regulation, however, Texas State had plenty of attempts to put the ball in the net. Texas State finished with 16 shots and seven corner kicks.
Troy produced only two shots on goal before freshman Erin Bloomfield scored the game-winning goal in overtime.
The Bobcats struggled to finish close games in overtime against the likes of Stephen F. Austin, Houston Baptist and Abilene Christian at the beginning of the season.
Head coach Kat Conner led the ‘Cats to their first win of the season against Louisiana 3-2 on September 20 to open conference play.
The maroon and gold began to shift players around the field to adjust the defense later in the season.
Defensive shifts against Little Rock dominated the opponent’s side of the ball for most of the game which resulted in the Bobcat’s second win of the season, with a final score of 2-1. Texas State’s last regular season game resulted in a 3-1 win over ULM on senior night.
Conner now enters her 23rd offseason at the helm after concluding 2020 with an overall record of 4-9-1.
