Her second came when senior Jazmyne Avant sent a cross from deep in the Red Raider territory and Tymrak scored at the far post corner. It was the second double-goal match of Tymrak's career. Tymrak also provided the assist on Taylor Travis's goal. Tymrak brought the ball down the middle of the TTU half and slid the ball forward where Travis finished at the right post.
