The UNT women’s soccer team got back on track with a pair of 4-0 wins over Louisiana Lafayette and Louisiana Monroe.

Early scores by Michelle Young gave the Mean Green (7-5-1, 2-2-0) an edge over the Warhawks (2-10-1, 0-4-0) and the Ragin’ Cajuns (6-7-0, 1-3-0).

“We need to win all our games at home so this was a good start,” head coach John Hedlund said. “They tried to take us out of the game with the physical play, but we stayed focused and got the win that we needed.”

The sophomore forward notched her fourth goal of the season in the second minute against ULM and followed up with her fifth strike in the fourth minute of the ULL game.

UNT got a spark from Carly McDowell, who led the way with two goals against the Warhawks and added her third goal of the year off a corner kick against the Ragin Cajuns.

“We were ready to start scoring some goals and really get this season going today,” McDowell said. “We stayed physical but we were smart about it, I think we did a good job with that.”

Senior goalkeeper Mandy Hall recorded her sixth and seventh scoreless outings of the season, lowering her goals against average to .73.

The Mean Green continues Sun Belt play when its travels to Alabama to take on Troy University at 7 p.m. on Friday.
