Oct. 7, 2012
Hattiesburg, Miss. - The Tulsa women's soccer team recorded a 3-2 win over Southern Miss on Sunday afternoon in Hattiesburg, Miss. TU moved to 7-5-2 on the season and 2-3-1 in Conference USA, while the Golden Eagles fell to 4-7-1 overall and 1-4 in the league. Head Coach Kyle Cussen also picked up his 150th career victory and 40th win at Tulsa.
"I think there is a lot of parity in this league, which was evident this weekend," Cussen said. "I was proud of the girls for rebounding after Friday's loss and playing hard today. I thought our girls came in with a lot of confidence, played well and played hard. We never trailed in the game. It was physical at times, but our kids handled it well and kept plugging along. I am proud of them all. Cammy scored a nice goal, Raven picked up her first goal and Lindsay scored the game-winning goal."
"Cammy came off the bench and scored a goal and picked up an assist," Cussen said. "I thought she responded well to her new role coming off the bench and did a great job today."
Raven Tatum tallied her first collegiate goal in the 60th minute from 30 yards out off a pass from Claire Hulcer to make it 2-0, but Danica Roberts scored 15 minutes later for the Golden Eagles to pull within one. Just under two minutes later Lindsay Kirch again extended the TU advantage, but Shelbi Moeller tallied the last goal with under a minute to play and the Hurricane came away with the 3-2 victory.
TU had a 16-11 lead in shots, including an 8-4 advantage in shots on goal, and the Hurricane had a 7-2 lead in corner kicks.
Tulsa will return to action on Friday, Oct. 12th against Marshall. Game time is set for 6:00 pm in Huntington, W.Va.
