#15 Texas Tech Soccer dropped their season opener Friday night to USC 1-0 at the Lobo Invitational in Albuquerque, NM.

The Trojans' goal came during the final 10 minutes of the match. During the 82nd minute Hailey Hite was able to gather a deflection off of a pass from Kayla Mills. Hite then shot the ball from the far post and was able to beat Texas Tech goalie Lauren Watson.

USC did a good job limiting Texas Tech's scoring opportunities. Tech only managed six shots and one corner kick throughout the match.  USC had 12 shots and nine corner kicks.

Texas Tech has Saturday off before playing against New Mexico at 2pm CDT on Sunday to wrap up the Lobo Invitational.
