HOBBS, N.M. - The University of Dallas women's soccer team fell 4-0 on Saturday in a non-conference match at NAIA University of the Southwest. Dallas dropped to 1-4-1 on the season, while the Mustangs improved to 3-2 in their home opener.

Nevarez grabbed a hat trick for University of the Southwest, scoring the first three goals by halftime to lead the charge. Garcia added the final tally. 

The guests were barely outshot 15-13, and placed 12 shots on goal. However, USW's goalie Avendano turned away all 12 for saves in the clean sheet. Elisa Duran (Pomona, Calif.) tied a game-high five shots and landed four on frame. Sydney Stirling (McLean, Va.) and Whitney Jackson (Pryor, Okla.) added a pair of shots on goal each. Olivia Severson (La Crosse, Wis.) played the full 90 minutes in goal the first time this season and nabbed six saves. 


Dallas looks to bounce back at Austin College on Friday, September 21. The Crusaders are seeking their first conference win of the fall.
