For the second straight regular season, the TCU Horned Frogs Women’s Soccer team has won the Big 12 Championship. In the final game of the regular season, TCU traveled to Lubbock on Thursday night to take on Texas Tech. The Frogs won that match 1-0 thus securing the championship title.
TCU and Tech played a scoreless first half with the Red Raiders having a 4-3 shot advantage. The two teams continued to go toe-to-toe in the second half as well. Messiah Bright’s goal in the 85th minute gave TCU the win.
The win over Tech was the Frogs’ 15th of the season, making it the most in program history. TCU is now unbeaten in its last eight games (7-0-1) and has won seven in a row. The seven wins in a row match the program’s longest streak, which was set earlier this season.
