TCU, Arkansas tied at half


    With one half in the books, the TCU and Arkansas women’s soccer teams are deadlocked in a 0-0 tie.

    TCU came out of the gates aggressive, berating Arkansas goalie, freshman Cameron Carter, with shots from all over the field.  

    The Frogs had a chance to strike first early in the opening half when sophomore defender Bobbi Clemmer’s corner kick into the traffic in front of the Arkansas goal rebounded out to senior forward Brittany Slyman, whose shot was blocked by the Arkansas defense.

    The Horned Frogs’ best opportunity came midway through the first half when freshman forward Michelle Prokof launched a straightaway shot over the head of Carter, only to see it float just over the crossbar.

    With 19 minutes left in the first period, Prokof and Arkansas junior defender Allie Tripp collided in midair at midfield, leaving both players shaken up. Prokof remained in the game momentarily but had to leave and be taken to the locker room minutes later with an apparent side injury.

    Through one half of play, TCU goalkeeper, freshman Shannon Coffer, has two saves on five Arkansas shots.
