Oct. 5, 2012
Orlando, Fla. -
The Tulsa women's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to eighth-ranked UCF on Friday night at the UCF Soccer Complex in Orlando, Fla. TU fell to 6-5-2 on the season and 1-3-1 in Conference USA, while the Knights moved to 10-2-1 overall and 4-1 in the league.
"This was the best our midfielders have played all year long," Head Coach Kyle Cussen said. "We did a good job defensively and in holding possession. When playing a team like this you have to do all the little things right and for the most part we did. The team had a quiet focus tonight, and went out and did their job and played really well. I am excited about Sunday and us moving forward if we can play this well on a regular basis."
"Raven and Jordan played really well in the midfield, and Hayley did a great job in goal. I am proud of everyone, but those three really kept us in the game, but that doesn't diminish anything everyone else did tonight because everyone played well."
Nicolette Radovcic scored the game-winner at the 42:22 mark from inside the box to give UCF a 1-0 lead heading into the break. Tishia Jewell made it 2-0 as she punched in a cross from Sokhara Goddall in the 72nd minute.
The Knights had a 17-4 lead in shots, including 11 shots on goal, and a 3-2 lead in corner kicks.
Tulsa will return to action on Sunday, Oct. 7th against Southern Miss. Game time is set for 1:00 pm in Hattiesburg, Miss.
