No. 5 Texas settles for 2-2 tie with LSU
September 19th, 2007 8AM

TAGS:  college women


[TUESDAY NIGHT] Women's soccer interest is high in Austin!

The No. 5 Longhorns drew their largest crowd of the season (2,008 fans) for a weeknight clash with previously unbeaten and untied LSU that ended in a 2-2 tie.

All-American Kelsey Carpenter and freshman Niki Arlitt scored for UT, which moved to 4-1-1 on the season. The tie snapped LSU's five-game winning streak.

Twice the Longhorns went ahead on goals by Arlitt (on a one-two with Emily Anderson) and Carpenter (her fifth of the season), but the Tigers answered each time with goals by Rachel Yapez and Roslyn Jones (off a rebound of a Yapez corner kick knocked away by UT goalie Dianna Pfenninger).

Despite the tie, Texas coach Chris Petrucelli said the Longhorns played well.

"I'm not disappointed in the way we played," he said. "I'm just disappointed in the results. The biggest thing is that we had the lead a couple of times and we gave it up. That's not typical of what we do, especially in the second half."
