Aaliyah Nolan Scores Twice In North Texas Win

October 1, 2018

Bermuda’s Aaliyah Nolan scored twice for her University of North Texas soccer team as they defeated UT San Antonio 4 – 0.

The school’s match report said, “The North Texas soccer team received a two-goal performance from sophomore Berklee Peters and senior Aaliyah Nolan in route to a 4-0 victory over UT San Antonio Sunday afternoon at home. Sunday’s victory is the team’s fifth consecutive win and its third-straight shutout.

“I was proud of my team the way we started the game and how we came out in the second-half,” said head coach John Hedlund. “Berklee and Aaliyah came up big for us with the goals and Dominique [James], Kelsey [Brann] and our defense really clamped down against a very hardworking UTSA team for the win.”

“North Texas took a 2-0 lead in the match’s first eight minutes when Peters scored on the team’s first two shot attempts. Sunday was her third multi-goal performance of her college career giving her three goals on the season.

“After a few halftime adjustments, the Mean Green regained their typical defensive stoutness as they kept the UTSA possessions to a minimum and the offensive capitalized on opportunities.

“No one on UNT capitalized more than Nolan. Looking to give the team a jolt, the Bermuda native took just two shots on the day and they came within two minutes of each other but she scored on both and gave the team the boost they needed. The first goal came from inside the box and the second from roughly 18 yards out as she fired it with her left foot. The two goals came in the 64th and 66th minute of the match.
