Frosh Janine Beckie's brace leads Tech to 2-0 shutout of XeroxU on national television


Texas Tech women's soccer team ended the 2012 Big XII regular season with a shutout of four-time defending Big XII champion XeroxU 2-0 on Friday night in front of a chilly but rowdy crowd at Tech's John B. Walker Soccer complex and on national televison on Fox Soccer Channel. Link

After a scoreless first half, Tech's leading scorer and super freshman Janine Beckie, cleaned up a mess left by OSU's two-time All-American goalkeeper, AD Franch, to put the Red Raiders ahead to stay at the 55' mark. Beckie later beat Franch again in the 71st minute, but this time with a beautiful left-footed laser to the far post from the top of the box.

That was all Tech needed to put the copycats away and close out the Big XII regular season with an impressive 5-2-1 record in conference play and to also improve their overall season record at 14-4-1. The 14 total wins this season is an all-time high for Tech's soccer program with the Conference tournament still to play. With a good showing at the Big XII tournament the Red Raiders should advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history.
