The college soccer season got under way on Friday with the University of Incarnate Word women travelling to Austin and falling to a 7-0 loss to Texas at Mike A Myers Stadium in the season opener for both teams.

The Cardinals never really looked in the match, with Texas dominating the possession and UIW failing to get a single shot on goal, registering just one shot, off target, in the whole contest.

UIW did hold out well for the first 12 minutes but from there the floodgates just opened with Isabelle Kerr scoring after some good link-up play from Julia Dyche and Sharis Lachappelle to give Texas their opener.

Barely over one minute later, the Longhorns made it two as Lachapelle turned scorer, heading home Kelsey Shimmick's cross.

UIW's lone shot came after the second goal as Sarah Johnson was able to get a shot away but it was blocked by the Texas defense.

Things calmed down, but Olivia Brook came on as a substitute to make her collegiate debut in the 31st minute and scored with her first touch after being on the pitch for less than one minute as Julie Arnold found Brook who scored her first ever collegiate goal on debut.

In the 39th minute the Longhorns took a four goal lead in to the half as Ali Schmalz controlled and set up Quinn Zulkowski who scored Texas' fourth for a 4-0 lead at half-time.

Again UIW held off Texas for 12 minutes as Shimmick again put in a superb cross that was met by Jasmine Hart to make it five for the Longhorns.

Brook sealed her brace in the 64th minute as she did it all on her own as she came through and scored an unassisted goal to make it six for Texas.

The final goal came in the 71st minute as Sydney Shutter also did it herself as she wrapped up the 7-0 win with an impressive solo strike.
