UCSB Suffers First Loss in Women’s Soccer

Tecora Turner's goal in the 65th minute broke a 1-1 tie and helped the University of Texas to a 2-1 win over visiting UC Santa Barbara on a sweltering afternoon in Austin on Sunday. The loss ended the Gauchos' season-opening eight-game winning streak.

With the score tied, Turner took a pass from Alexa Adams, got past a trio of UCSB defenders and scored her first goal of the season past UCSB goalkeeper Brittney Rogers.

The Longhorns (6-3-0) got on the scoreboard in the 10th minute when Cyera Hintzen scored her first goal of the season, a 25-yard blast from the right side.

The Gauchos (8-1-0) tied the score in the 47th minute. Amanda Ball took a feed from Sydney Magnin on the left side and put the ball past Paige Brown to make it 1-1. The goal was Ball's team-leading eighth of the season.

After Turner scored her un-equalizer, UCSB pressured but couldn't find the back of the net again.

The Longhorns finished with a narrow 14-13 edge in shots, but the Gauchos had a 7-2 advantage in corner kicks.

The contest was played with temperatures in the high 90s for virtually all 90 minutes.

The eight-game winning streak was the second longest in Santa Barbara history, four short of the 12-game stretch that the 1989 team opened with.

UCSB returns to action when it travels to the University of the Pacific for a 5:00 p.m. match on Thursday, Sept. 22.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
