AMHERST, Mass. -- The University of Delaware women’s soccer team extended its unbeaten streak to four-matches Friday afternoon drawing with host UMass 1-1. After falling behind 1-0, senior Krista Trinidad tallied an 83rd-minute goal that pushed the Hens to their fourth consecutive positive result.

UMass (1-3-1) struck first Friday when freshman Jenny Hipp tallied her first career goal in the 77th minute of the match. Just six minutes later, Delaware (2-2-2) found the equalizer when Trinidad made a beautiful run into the opposing third. When Trinidad entered the 18-yard box, she was able to pry the ball loose from Minutewoman keeper Cassidy Babin and fired a shot into the left-hand side of the wide open net.

In the tie, goalie Kailyn Rekos had seven saves. Trinidad recorded six of Delaware’s eight shots for the match.

Head Coach Mike Barroqueiro

"This was a hard fought draw on the road. We started the game very slow and to be fair, probably wasted an entire half. I thought the kids responded well to the challenge in the second half. We are still learning how to put together complete performances but to be able to learn while we gut out results is telling of how deep this team can dig when they need to. We're excited to get back home and regroup for Monday."
