SC: UTEP postgame
Huntsville - After giving up two first half goals, Sam Houston rallied to have an opportunity to tie in the second half but ended up falling 3-1 to UTEP in a non-conference women's soccer match at Joseph Pritchett Field Friday night.

Sophomore forward Tricia Mallory scored Sam Houston's lone goal in the 63rd minute. The goal was her sixth of the season and the 17th of her career, moving Mallory into fourth place in SHSU women's soccer career goal scoring.

Mallory had another opportunity to score when Miner goalkeeper Sarah Dilling misplaced a clearance pass but sailed the shot over the bar.

Tess Hall opened the scoring for UTEP with a goal at the near post after a cross crom Brittany Kindzierski in the 24th minutes. Five minutes later the Miners made it 2-0 on a goal by Katie Dorman.

"We struggled in the first half after giving up the two goals," Sam Houston head coach Tom Brown said. "But we got reorganized at half and stepped up, putting more pressure on them defensively and got more aggressive on offense, putting them on their heals more. We had opportunities but couldn't finish."

UTEP scored an insurance goal in the 82nd minute as Amanda Pak put a cross from Lauren Katada in the back of the net.

"We brought in an extra attacker late to try to create some more scoring chances and that left us open more in the back," Brown said. "Those are the chances you take."

Raquel Bueno is Sam Houston's all-time career goal scoring leader with 27 from 2005 to 2008. Kim Brown scored 19 in 2003 to 2005 and Yoanna Garcia talled 18 in 2004 to 2007.

Sam Houston State returns to action at 1 p.m. Sunday when the Bearkats play host to Louisiana Tech also at Pritchett Field.
