Making her first career start, Shannon Coffer made six saves to help lead TCU to a 2-1 win over Air Force on Sunday at the Montana Kickoff Invitational.

A pair of freshmen, Michelle Prokof and Meghan Murphy, provided the goals for the Horned Frogs.

“For the most part, I thought our defending against Wyoming was pretty good, just not on the set-pieces,” coach Eric Bell said. “Today, we limited Air Forces’ chances to far out and gave Shannon a chance to make the saves.

“I was impressed with her play today. She came in and did a good job. She organized the back line and because of that didn’t have to work very hard because the back line limited the chances. When she did have to make a save, she did. For a freshman, I though she did a really good job.”

The victory evened TCU’s record at 1-1.
