Memphis, Tenn. - Tulsa's fifth-ranked men's soccer team opened up Conference USA play with a 2-1 win over Memphis on Saturday night at the Mike Rose Complex in Memphis, Tenn. TU moved to 7-1 on the season and 1-0 in C-USA, while the Tigers fell to 2-6 overall and 0-1 in the league.

"Overall we had pretty good control most of the game," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "We started out the way we wanted to play and created a number of chances. Memphis is athletic and physical. Every game in this league is going to be a grind, so it was good win for us on the road."

Defender Justin Chavez put the Golden Hurricane on the board at the 17:08 mark as he punched in a corner kick from Ashley McInnes that was played into the box. This was Chavez' first goal of the season and fourth of his career.

McInnes scored his fifth goal of the year off a long ball that was played by James Gulley in the 49th minute to give TU a two-goal cushion.

Parker Duncan pulled the Tigers to within one in the 70th minute, but Memphis couldn't get the equalizing goal, falling 2-1.

McInnes led the Tulsa attack with three shots, while Omar Mata added two attempts. Ray Clark logged all 90 minutes in goal and earned two saves.

Memphis had a 13-8 advantage in shots, but TU had a 4-3 lead in shots on goal. The Tigers also had a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks.

Tulsa will return to action on Tuesday, Oct. 5th against 12th-ranked Creighton. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m. in Omaha, Neb.
