Louisiana Tech picked up win No. 10 on the season on Friday night as they blanked UTEP, 2-0, at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex.
After suffering two straight defeats last weekend, Tech (10-7, 3-4 Conference USA) bounced back with a strong performance in the back by shutting out the Miners who had registered at least one goal in every game this season.
The Lady Techsters also needed to capitalize on scoring opportunities when they presented themselves and they did with a first half goal by Kathryn Sloan and a late insurance goal by Mylene Roy-Ouellet.

CHOUDRANT — Sophomore Victor Lange led Louisiana Tech with a 1-under-par 71 Monday as the Bulldogs enter today’s final round with a one-stroke lead over North Texas at the Argent Financial Classic hosted at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant.
Lange is only one stroke behind co-leaders Pep Angles (Central Arkansas) and Calum Hill (UL-Monroe) who lead with a pair of identical 2-under-par 70 scores. In all, Louisiana Tech has three players in the top 10 following the first round of competition.
Overall Tech leads with a 5-over-par (293) team score after one round of play.
Louisiana Tech continued to take advantage of the long sought after warm, dry weather in North Louisiana as the Bulldogs practiced for two hours at Joe Aillet Stadium Wednesday afternoon in the team’s fourth practice session of the spring.
Wednesday’s session, the second in shells (helmets and shoulder pads), once again ended with the Oklahoma Drill but featured a majority of teaching sessions for a young team looking to put the pieces of the puzzle in attempting to formulate a depth chart this spring.
