LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech soccer team will take to the road for a pair of matches this weekend, taking a break from Big 12 play on Friday by traveling to Colorado Spring, Colo., to battle the Colorado College Tigers at 8 p.m. before jumping back into conference action on Sunday with a match against in-state rival Texas in Austin, Texas, at 1 p.m.

 

The Red Raiders received a outstanding effort in goal from senior Megan Knauss in the team match against Oklahoma over the weekend. The Tigard, Ore., native collected a season-high nine saves, including two crucial stops in the opening minutes of each half, as the Red Raiders were edged by the Sooners.

 

Offensively, sophomore Priscilla Esquivel and senior Kimmie Davis generated several scoring chances for Tech, combining for seven second half shots in Sunday's contest at Oklahoma State. Davis, who ranks among the Big 12 leaders in several offensive categories, enters the weekend looking to add a goal to her team-leading total of six this season.

 

Colorado College, an independent school, enters this weekend with a record of 6-4-3, but the team has emerged victorious only once in its last eight contests, meanwhile, the Texas Longhorns defeated Baylor and Texas A&M last weekend to even their conference mark at 2-2 and improve their overall record this season to 5-5-1.

     

Last Time Out...

The Red Raiders dropped a pair of matches on an Oklahoma road swing over the weekend, falling to Oklahoma by a score of 2-0 on Friday in Norman, Okla., and suffering a 5-0 setback against Oklahoma State on Sunday in Stillwater, Okla.

 

Senior goalkeeper Megan Knauss made several key saves, finishing with a season-high nine stops, in Friday's contests as her strong play in goal kept Tech within striking distance of the Sooners.

 

In the OSU match, the Red Raiders ran up against a hot Cowgirl team and surrendered two goals to  Big 12-leading scorer Jesyca Rosholt. Sophomore Priscilla Esquivel led the Red Raiders with four shots in the match and gave Tech its best scoring chance of the day, hitting the crossbar with a shot from 30-yards late in the second half.
