Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.After a disappointing defeat at Baylor on Friday, TCU soccer’s next match against UT-Austin was labeled a “must-win” game by head coach Eric Bell.The team took him at his word and the Horned Frogs defeated the sixth-ranked Longhorns 1-0 courtesy of a late Yazmeen Ryan winner.“It was really important as we look at RPI (rating percentage index, a metric used to evaluate teams for tournament seeding) and making it into the NCAA tournament,” Bell said. “We want to have a good seeding in the Big 12 tournament and then do well enough in that to make the NCAA tournament.”Messiah Bright controls the ball against Baylor on Sept. 28, 2018. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.The Frogs started in the same flat 4-4-2 formation they played against Baylor, but the personnel was slightly altered — Yazmeen Ryan, who typically plays as a wide midfielder, started as a forward next to Messiah Bright.This new partnership almost paid immediate dividends, as Ryan found Bright with a through ball in the third minute that put Bright one-on-one with Longhorn goalkeeper Nicole Curry. Curry made a nice kick-save to deny the goal.TCU played a strong first half but was unable to break the deadlock and went to the locker room tied 0-0. The Frogs led 9-2 in shots after the first half.UT-Austin appeared sluggish for much of the game — part of that may have been the pressure applied by TCU, but their Friday night match against Oklahoma State that went to extra time likely impacted their energy as well.That same sluggishness would have been understandable for the Horned Frogs after a difficult loss Friday in Waco, but they came out firing from the opening whistle.“When we came out in the first half, we were dominating, and that’s definitely something we were looking to do — dominate, dominate, dominate,” said Ryan. “We definitely did that, so I think it set the tone for the whole game.”TCU found success all afternoon with balls over the top of the defense, as the Longhorns struggled to deal with the pace of the Frog forwards.Those struggles arose again in the 77th minute when a perfectly weighted chipped pass by Maddy Warren found Yazmeen Ryan behind the defense.

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Hill was calm on the ball and linked the team together, while Tomasdottir was all over the field making important tackles and carrying the ball forward.“They’ve played a lot of minutes in a lot of big games,” said Bell. “This was another big game on their resume, and they were able to put in a very good performance against a very good team.”Home-field advantage was important for TCU both for fan support and familiarity.“We got back to the friendly confines and dimensions of this field that we like, and we were able to play the style of soccer that we wanted to,” said Bell.The victory moves TCU to 8-3-2 on the season, while UT-Austin falls to 9-1-2.

In total, this puts the number of active plans down by 135,000 over the last month, or – a 5% reduction.The monthly decline represents the healthiest rate of improvement since the end of last November.Black Knight’s researchers say it is a direct result of servicers working through the 1.2 million plans that entered this month with scheduled March month-end expirations for extension and/or removal.They stress that even with such strong monthly improvement, there are still more than 46,000 active plans with March month-end expirations, which provides the potential for additional improvement in the coming weeks.As of March 23, 2.57 million homeowners remain in forbearance, representing 4.9% of all homeowners with mortgages.By type of loan:The week’s improvement was driven by decreases among both Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac-backed loans, at -21,000, and FHA/VA plans, which dropped by 10,000. Among portfolio/PLS mortgages, however, activity increased by 12,000.”Early extension activity suggests servicers continue to approach forbearance plans in three-month increments, with the bulk of would-be March expirations being extended out through June,” BK reported. “Plan extensions have accounted for 75% of all extension/removal activity in recent weeks, but removals are up simply as a result of the volume of expirations that were scheduled for this month.”The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced extensions of several measures that the agency says will align COVID-19 mortgage relief policies across the federal government. This announcement, which extends temporary measures (previously set to expire March 31) until the end of June follows the White House’s February 16 moratoria extension applied to all federally backed mortgages through the same period.Said measures include provisions for borrowers with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac-backed mortgages who may be eligible for an additional three-month extension of COVID-19 forbearance, according to a press release. This additional three-month extension allows borrowers to be in forbearance for up to 18 months. Black Knight notes this includes the bulk of would-be March expirations.Finally, the McDash Flash Payment Tracker shows that 90.7% of observed borrowers had made their payment through March 22, up from 89.8% at the same time in February.Find the full weekly forbearance reports on Black Knight’s blog.
