    HOUSTON – Texas Southern University's Lady Tigers returned to the pitch after a two-week hiatus thanks to Hurricane Harvey on Friday, but could not overcome Lamar as the visiting Cardinals prevailed 3-0.

    The Cardinals (5-2) controlled the pace of the match from the opening whistle and held a 27-3 advantage in shots taken. Madison Ledet's strike off a throw-in and deflection in the 21st minute gave Lamar a lead it would not relinquish.

    Samantha Moreno and Jordan Mulnix added goals for the Cardinals in the second half.

    Alexis Robles played all 90 minutes in goal for the Lady Tigers (1-2-1), making six saves. Her teammates turned away two additional Lamar scores at the goal line during the match.

    Maya Turner played 90 minutes in the backfield for the Lady Tigers, while Briana Norwood was on the pitch for 86 minutes.

    The Lady Tigers return to action Sunday when they host Conference USA side Southern Mississippi at TSU's Alexander Durley Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.
