ABILENE – The UT Tyler women’s soccer team had its season come to an end with a 7-0 loss to No. 5-ranked Hardin-Simmons on Friday in the American Southwest Conference Championship semifinals at the HSU Soccer Complex.

The Patriots (11-5-1) were shutout for the fifth time this season and allowed more than one goal in a game for only the second time all year. HSU (18-0) advances to the ASC Championship finals where it will be playing for its 15th straight conference title, while the fifth-seeded Patriots finish the year having reached at least the semifinals for the past six seasons.

The Cowgirls jumped out quick over the Patriots with Kami Jones scoring just 89 seconds into the game before Kenne Kessler made it 2-0 with the second goal in the 15th minute. HSU owned a 5-0 halftime lead with the addition of Olivia Hartman, Kirsten Parrish and Ellie Ratliff scoring the first 45 minutes before Sofia Quijano and Maddie Price added two more in the second half for the seven-goal difference.

UT Tyler was limited to only three shots on goal with two from Kelsy Haden and another from Caroline Williams. The Patriots had 12 total shots, while the Cowgirls finished with 12 shots on goal. Emily Hurley made five saves in the game for the Patriots.

The game was the final in the careers of Williams, Taylor Tarsi, Jessica L’Hoste, Emily Hurley, Caitlyn Mortus and Hannah Fischer who have helped lead the program to 55 wins over the past four years. The Patriots advanced to the semifinals after a 4-2 shootout advantage over ETBU on Tuesday in Marshall. 

HSU will play the winner of the other semifinal matchup between UT Dallas and Mary Hardin-Baylor at 1 p.m. on Sunday in the ASC Women’s Championship finals in Abilene.
