Kansas soccer tops TCU, 2-1


— Junior forward Lois Heuchan snapped an enormous scoring drought with a pair of goals to lift Kansas soccer over TCU, 2-1. With the road win, the Jayhawks moved to 7-3-2 on the season and 2-0 in the Big 12.

Heuchan netted two goals within a 45-minute span on Friday, after going 756 days without a goal. Heuchan found the back of the net within the first 20 minutes of action on the assist by senior Tayler Estrada. It was the sixth time this season that Kansas got on the board first.

The second goal came less than 12 minutes after the Horned Frogs had evened the score. It marked the first time in her career that Heuchan scored multiple goals.

Kansas will stay in the Lone Star State when the team travels to Texas on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Congratulations on the win and strong start to the season. Keep up the good work.

A phrase has this non-soccer player wondering. KU scored the first goal of the game for the 6th time (of 12 games) this season. 50% which doesn't strongly correlate with winning 70% of their games. How important is it in soccer to score the first goal? Does this make us a slow starting/comeback type of team?
