The women’s soccer team lost to Wyoming 4-3 on Friday in its first game of the season at the Kickoff Invitational.
Wyoming scored the game-winner on a free kick with just over 13 minutes left in the game. It was a difficult way to begin the season for head coach Eric Bell, who is in his second season with the team.
“Obviously, we are disappointed with the results,” Bell said. “I thought we played well enough to win, but we gave up four set-piece goals which is not normal for us and is something we must fix.”
The loss came in a very evenly matched game that saw three ties and three lead changes. The match had no shortage of offense with both teams scoring twice before halftime.
Freshman Michelle Prokof scored the first goal of the game to make it 1-0 in the 11th minute. The score was the first of Prokof’s collegiate career, and it came off an assist from junior Kelly Johnson.
Wyoming scored two goals in the next five minutes to make it 2-1. The Lady Frogs tied the game at two goals apiece with a score by sophomore Bobbi Clemmer seven minutes before the half.
In the second half, sophomore Makenzie Koch scored after just three minutes to give TCU a 3-2 lead. While the Lady Frogs held the Cowgirls without a shot for the first 30 minutes of the second half, Wyoming then scored on a corner kick to tie the game at three.
“We created enough chances, and I thought we created a lot more than Wyoming did, but we didn’t finish,” Bell said.

Day in the life of a TCU nursing student
Imagine waking up twice a week at 4:30 a.m., attempting to memorize countless patient medications, driving 30 minutes or more to a hospital and spending the rest of your day taking care of a patient and learning about hospital procedures.
Such is the life of a TCU nursing student during a clinical, a real world experience designed to facilitate the acquisition of practical knowledge and skills. While enrolled in a clinical, nursing students wake up while most of their peers are still sound asleep.
