CANYON, Texas — Sarit Shenar posted a hat trick in the second half on Saturday to lead unbeaten West Texas A&M to a 4-1 victory over Eastern New Mexico University in a Lone Star Conference women’s soccer match.

Shenar, a senior forward from Rehovot, Israel, scored the last three goals for the Lady Buffs (8-0, 1-0 LSC), who led 1-0 at halftime when Kendal Kitchens scored midway through the period.

Shenar made it 2-0 with an unassisted goal less than seven minutes into the second half, then added another tally barely two minutes later on an assist by Kitchens.

Senior forward Kara Henderson got the Zias on the board midway through the second half, scoring off a pass from junior Nicole Bregler, but Shenar added another unassisted goal in the final two minutes.

WT had a 10-3 edge in shots on goal in the match, with junior keeper Stephanie Sanchez making six saves for the Zias.
