No. 17 TCU soccer extended their win streak to six with a 3-0 victory over Houston Baptist Thursday night.

“I thought it was a pretty good effort from minute one to minute 90,” head coach Eric Bell said. “With us having the ball the lion’s share of the game, I was pleased that we didn’t get frustrated when we didn’t score.”

Gracie Brian continued her relentless attacking run, netting her sixth goal and third assist on the season to bring the Frogs up 2-0 in the 58th minute.

A Tatum Condrey ball in for Maddy Warren put the Huskies away in the 89th minute, sealing a sixth-straight win for the Frogs.

In terms of firsts, Condrey had her first assist of her career, along with a career-first goal for Michelle Slater off of a Grace Collins assist, her fourth of the year.

“Grace Collins [is] getting on the score sheet, being very productive with assists,” Bell said. “I’m happy to see Michelle Slater in the right place at the right time to score on a corner. Overall, I’m really happy with our group. The freshmen are doing what we expected of them.”

Despite this onslaught, Husky goalkeeper Ashtyn Franks held her own, posting 11 saves against the Frogs.

TCU has now outscored opponents 19-2 over the win streak and 19-4 over the season. This six-match win streak is the longest streak for the Frogs since 2014.

The strong defensive effort has not gone unnoticed either, as TCU has only allowed three goals in this six-match stretch, two of which came in one game. 

Emily Alvarado had four shutouts in goal, totaling 10 in her career. She also recorded three saves on the night.

TCU will test its win streak further with a home match against the Washington Huskies at 1 p.m. this Sunday at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium.
