Texas Tech Red Raiders Soccer takes season opener over Troy Trojans 2-0

The Texas Tech Red Raiders soccer team kicked off their season Thursday by welcoming the Troy Trojans to the John Walker Soccer Complex. After a successful preseason slate, the Red Raiders picked up right where they left off in a 2-0 win against the Trojans.

The only member of the Red Raiders’ preseason All-Big 12 team showed why she made the roster Thursday, as Macy Blackburn picked up an assist on both of Texas Tech’s goals. First, she found captain Charlotte Teeter in the 22nd minute on a pass that Teeter converted for the Red Raiders’ first goal of the season.

Blackburn would pick up her second assist three minutes into the second half as she found Ashleigh Williams in the box who headed home to give the Red Raiders their 2-0 lead.

Defensively, the Red Raiders were all over the Trojans for a clean sheet. They allowed the Trojans just two shots the entire game, and the first didn’t come until the 36th minute. Red Raiders goalkeeper Madison White picked up the win in goal, not allowing a single shot on goal in the entire game. the evening.

As the Red Raiders play through their non-conference schedule and prepare for Big 12 play, they will take every opportunity to get their 10 freshmen on the field, coach Tom Stone said.

“It was a good first night,” Stone said. “We have 10 freshmen, that’s a third of our team that was their first collegiate game. I feel like they were ready and played well enough to win.”

What’s next for Texas Tech?

After the Red Raiders open their season with a 2-0 win over the Trojans, they will welcome the Arizona Wildcats to Lubbock on Sunday. The Wildcats also opened their season Thursday with a 2-1 win over Iowa State.
