Freshman Jazmine Navarro set a TWU single-game record with three assists in a 4-0 win over Southern Nazarene on Thursday night.
The Pioneers (3-1-1) set season highs in shots (25), shots on goal (13), goals (four), assists (five) and points (13). The five assists were the third-most in program history, the 13 points tied for the seventh-highest mark, and the four goals matched the eighth-best output since the inception of the program.
Senior Chelsea Martin was the first to score for TWU on an assist from Navarro in the 19th minute. Six minutes later, Navarro and sophomore Hannah Schneider assisted freshman Haley Ward for the first goal of her career. In the next 66 seconds, Navarro teamed with Ward to deliver an assist to Martin for a 3-0 Pioneer lead.
In the 75th minute, Schneider traveled half the length of the field and booted her first career goal into the back of the net to put TWU up 4-0.
Freshmen Maddie Vickroy and Toni Worley combined for a shutout and four saves against the Crimson Storm (2-3).
"It took the first 10-15 minutes for the team to settle down, but once we started to play our game we were able to create some opportunities that ended up being quality goals for us," TWU coach Babak Abouzar said. "Today's victory was a total team effort, as multiple people were creating quality chances, and that's good to see heading into our last nonconference game."
The Pioneers travel to Oklahoma Baptist for a Monday contest at 5:30 p.m. in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
