Thornton Nets All Four Goals In SMU's Win Over Northern Colorado

DALLAS (SMU) – Senior Allie Thornton led the Mustang offense, scoring all four goals in SMU's 4-0 win over Northern Colorado on Friday night.

SMU (4-1-0) put on an offensive show against the Bears (1-4-0) with 32 total shots and 11 on goal, holding possession throughout approximately 70 percent of the match.

Thornton put four of her seven shots into the back of the net throughout the match to reach a total of 30 career goals. The last time that a Mustang scored four or more goals was Sept. 20, 1987 when Patti Brown scored five versus Trinity.

Juniors Hannah Allred and Katia Novi and sophomore Celiana Torres all gained points for one assist each over the four SMU goals.

Freshman Tatum Sutherland and redshirt freshman Kierstin Flint split time in the goal, to combine for four saves and the shutout.

Next up, the Mustangs will host Rice on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. CT at Westcott Field before the last match of their homestand against Long Beach State on Sunday, Sept. 15 at 1 p.m. CT.
