Freshman Rachel Holden followed up her Friday hat trick with the game winner in Sunday’s home opener, and goalkeeper Jackie Kerestine posted her 17th career shutout to lead North Texas to a 1-0 win in Sunday’s home opener against Houston Baptist.
Holden emerged from a scrum in the left corner and blasted a ball past the Huskies keeper Patty Walrath into the back-post netting in the 36th minute.
Holden’s three goals on Friday helped UNT (2-0) to a 9-1 win over Texas Southern.
Kerestine kept the Houston Baptist at bay in the first half thanks to a pair of key saves. Her shutout moves her into sole possession of second place in school history in the category.
UNT returns to action next weekend in Winston Salem, N.C., where they will face No. 15 Wake Forest and Virginia Tech.
