The good run of form for Roadrunners soccer continued as they managed a 2-1 win over Sam Houston State at Huntsville on Sunday afternoon.

The win gives UTSA a 2-0 record, making it only the second time in UTSA history that soccer started with a 2-0 record, the last coming in 2010.

Kaytee O'Brien continued her stunning form as she scored again, this time poking in a rebound on the half hour mark to open the scoring for the Roadrunners.

A cross came in to Anissa Munson who was able to get space and get a header away, only to be denied by a solid save, which fell back to O'Brien who scored yet again to put UTSA in front.

The goal came after a tight opening half-hour but UTSA was able to continue to be the stronger side throughout that passage as they held the bulk of possession.

Sam Houston tried to come back to level terms at the end of the first half but the Roadrunners defense was strong and stopped the Bearkats to keep it 1-0 at the break.

The Roadrunners substituted their keeper at half-time, bringing in Emma Makela for Katherine Tesno but 12 minutes in she was picking the ball out from the back of the net as Allie Johnson was able to send the ball in to the back of the net with a well taken effort.

Four minutes after that the Roadrunners were back in front as Charlotte Husoe sent in a corner that allowed Munson to run on to at the far post and head home for the eventual game winner, the second in her collegiate career.

Sam Houston were the more dangerous side in the final half hour, after the equalizer, but the Roadrunners defense was much too strong as Sam Houston State only got three shots away.
