Texas defeated the Wildcat soccer team on Friday 7-0. The Wildcats are now 0-4 this season.

Kansas State came into the match against the Longhorns having never scored against the Big 12 Conference foe — a streak the team was not able to snap during the match-up. The Wildcats took 10 shots — only one of which was on goal.

The Longhorns jumped on top early, scoring in just the second minute of play, courtesy of senior forward Haley Berg. Junior defender Emma Regan scored the only other goal in the first half off of a penalty kick.

Texas scored five more times in the second half.

By the end of the game, seven different Texas players tallied a single goal. Wildcat redshirt freshman Cameron Illingworth started in goal and recorded six saves.

With the loss, K-State moves to 0-5 all-time against the Longhorns. They are in last place in the Big 12 standings.
