Taking control early on offense the University of
Houston-Victoria men’s soccer team extended their winning streak to five games
Thursday with a 3-0 win over the Concordia-Texas Tornadoes at the St. Stephen’s
Episcopal soccer complex.
The Jaguars (6-2) kept
CTX goalkeeper Nick Martin busy all day as they outshot the Tornadoes (0-4-1)
25-3, including a 10-2 edge in shots on goal. Thirteen different players had
opportunities for the Jaguars with Hector Gonzalez and Christian Turman leading
the way with five shots apiece, while Kyle Tally, Marcus Watt, Stanley smith
and Juan Vega took two shots.
Gonzalez, Turman and Tally each found the mark for the
Jaguars who scored once in the first half and twice in the second half.
Gonzalez gave the Jaguars the goal they needed in the
10th minute when he nailed a shot from the top of the box from 25 yards out.
Turman added an insurance goal on a header off a cross from
Lewis Edwards in the 51st minute and Tally iced the win with a goal in the 88th
minute. Tally picked the ball up in the box and delivered it to the inside of
the near post for his first collegiate goal.
Henrik Hundesruegge finished with two saves as he
recorded his second straight shutout win in goal and his third for the season.
The Jaguars return to action Saturday when they host
13th-ranked UT-Permian Basin in a 2 p.m. match at The Cage on the UHV campus.
