WICHITA FALLS — TWU suffered a heartbreaking loss on two late goals.

TWU held the Mustangs scoreless for 80 minutes before Ashley Cottrell tied the game at the 80:36 mark. She put the Mustangs on top two minutes later on a header off a corner kick.

Midwestern State outshot the Pioneers 23-9 and had a 10-5 advantage in corner kicks.

“Our defense was outstanding,” TWU head coach Fleur Benatar said.
