Lubbock, Texas - After being shutout in the first half, the Texas Tech soccer team scored four goals to rout Texas-San Antonio, 4-1, Sunday at R.P. Fuller Stadium. The Red Raiders improve to 2-2 on the season.

After attempting 20 shots in the first half as a team, Zhaleh Rezaie changed things when she tapped in a Shannon Sims pass in the 49th minute. It was Rezaie's first goal on the season.

Four minutes later, UTSA's Ezinne Opko tied the game by knocking in a Chelsea Zimmerman free kick that deflected off the top of the post.

In the 61st minute, Priscilla Esquivel scored her second goal of the season with the help of a Karen De Leon assist. De Leon would go on and score an unassisted goal five minutes later.

Jennifer Kammerer put the game away for the Red Raiders in the 75th minute with her goal from 25 feet out.

Following the match, Tech head coach Tom Stone said he was particularly proud of how the team battled after UTSA tied the game early in the second half.

"We know now that if we go down one or even get tied, the game is not over," Stone said. "I was proud of how the girls battled and never gave up. We just need to build off this against two good teams next weekend."

The Red Raiders travel next to the Dallas Metroplex for a 7 p.m. Friday match with TCU and a 1 p.m. Sunday match-up with the Mustangs of SMU. Tech returns to R.P. Fuller Stadium Sept. 23, against Jackson State.
