Texas Tech’s Charlotte Teeter earned the first goal of the night with 20:36 eclipse in the game and Ashleigh Williams earned the second goal with just three minutes of the second half elapsed.

“I appreciate the effort put forth by the ladies tonight. Texas Tech is a great side that will compete for a top spot in the Big 12,” Troy coach Robert Lane said. “That’s a good early match for us against a quality opponent who asked questions about our group throughout the 90 minutes. I’m looking forward to the response from this team on Monday.”

Troy is back on the road on Monday, Aug. 22, at Alabama A&M at 4 p.m.
