LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech women's spring indoor soccer tournament ended with the Thoroughbreds taking home the 2011 championship.
All matches were played over a five-week training block at the Robert Ewalt Student Recreation Center on Texas Tech's campus, which features a state-of-the art indoor soccer area. The dead ball was used in all games as well.
After round robin play, the top two contenders were the Thoroughbreds and Team, each led by a Tech soccer team captain, Casey McCall and Taylor Lytle, respectively. The Thoroughbreds held a 3-1 edge in games prior to the championship match and the trend continued as McCall's Thoroughbred team won handily by a score of 6-3 in the championship match.
In the championship match, McCall scored a team-high four goals, while Sarah Ellison netted two for the Thoroughbreds as Maggie Fete collected two assists and Ellison and McCall both had one apiece. For the Team, Jessica Disabella had two goals and Lytle added one goal and two assists.
The MVP and Golden Boot winner was Sarah Ellison, who scored 20 goals over the course of the competition. Fete collected eight assists during indoor play. A draft was held between indoor team captains to sort out the teams and Ellison was the first player taken in the draft by McCall.
"The Thoroughbreds couldn't have done it without Sarah," said McCall. "Her competitiveness and desire to win was exactly what we needed to win the spring indoor championship. Sarah's effort and constant drive makes everyone around her play better."
