Vanessa Ibewuike scored the first goal for Texas with just a minute and forty seconds remaining in the first half. Nina Frausing Pedersen served a long ball into the box while Ibewuike ran around her defenders and one-timed the ball into the goal right as it met the ground.
In the the second half, Hannah Higgins scored in the 83rd minute on a pass from Ibewuike. It was Higgins’ first goal of the season.
Alexa Gaul put up another clean sheet and made some great saves. She charged out of the box to shut down attacks by the Dartmouth forwards.
Texas won by a score of 2-0. The Longhorns are now 5-1 on the season and will face the University of San Diego next at a tournament to be hosted by USC.
Texas will play San Diego on Friday followed by USC on Sunday. The Longhorns will also have a chance to get an up-close look at Big 12 rival Oklahoma State who will be attending the tournament.

Due to falling behind in his real world duties, your Longhorn reporter could not write a full game report for the Dartmouth game and must also take a bit of a break from regular writing in order to get caught back up on work duties. That’s not especially fun news to hear, but your Longhorn reporter needs to make sure he’s taking better care of his real world duties or he might soon not be able to write at all! :)
