Bobcats run soccer win streak to six


Britney Curry became the all-time leading goal scorer in Texas State soccer one day last week. Two days later, she piled on to her own record.

With a goal in the Bobcats’ 2-0 win against Lamar on Oct. 9, Curry reached 11 this season and 32 for her career, making her the all-time leader at the school. On Oct. 11, she added a hat trick for all the home team scoring in Texas State’s 3-1 win against McNeese State.

Behind Curry’s scoring, the Bobcats continued their roll through the Southland Conference. The victories put the Bobcats on a six-game winning streak as they improved to 4-0 in the Southland and 9-5 overall.

Taylor Person joined Curry in the scoring column during Texas State’s win against Lamar. It was Person’s first career goal.

Mandi Mawyer, named the league’s goaltender of the week a few days earlier, registered another shutout against Lamar, giving the Bobcats eight shutouts in their eight wins to that point.

“(The shutouts) are definitely not just Mandi (Mawyer) or the backline, but the entire team,” said head coach Kat Conner. “We work on it all the time at practice and they really put forth the effort tonight. I’m very proud of the team.”

Sunday, the Bobcats won for the first time without the benefit of a shutout, but they still won comfortably with Curry’s hat trick in the 3-1 decision against McNeese State. Curry, a junior, scored all three Texas State goals in the first half as the Bobcats took a 3-0 halftime lead in their easy win.

Mawyer made eight saves to pick up her fifth win of the season.

The Bobcats will go in the road this week for games at Nicholls State on Friday and at Southeastern Louisiana on Sunday.
