FORT WORTH, Texas (September 21, 2013) – Nikki Lockwood stopped all 10 shots on goal and handed Lubbock Christian University their third consecutive shutout, as Lockwood's performance helped Texas Wesleyan University shutout the Lady Chaparrals 2-0 Saturday afternoon.
The Lady Chaps have now been shutout in three consecutive games and have not scored a goal in the past 284:55. The three consecutive games without scoring a goal is a program record for LCU, who only suffered one shutout last season.
The Rams scored in the game's 21st minute, as Shrareh Asadi put a shot from inside the box into the back of the net for her third goal of the season. In the 32nd minute, a yellow card was issued to LCU's Brie Munoz with a foul in the box, which resulted in a penalty kick. LCU goalkeeper Lauren Story came up with a big save to deny the penalty shot from Jessica Watton. TWU grabbed an insurance goal in the 77th minute, as Alexi Michaelkovich scored an unassisted goal for her fourth goal of the season.
Despite not putting anything into the back of the net, LCU did out-shoot TWU 24-13, including a 16-4 advantage in the opening half. The Lady Chaps also had a 10-7 advantage in shots on goal. Lockwood stopped all 10 shots for her fourth shutout of the season. Story allowed a pair of goals and made five saves in the losing effort.
LCU falls to 2-3-0 on the season and they have lost their last three games. TWU improved to 5-0-1 with the victory. LCU returns home to host Northwestern Oklahoma State University Tuesday at 4 p.m. before opening Heartland Conference play Thursday.
