Aug. 20, 2003
Memphis, Tenn. - The University of Memphis women's soccer team dropped its exhibition opener Wednesday night falling to cross-town rival Christian Brothers 1-0 at Echles Field.
The teams went scoreless in the first half as the Lady Tigers out shot the visitors 6-2 in the half and 13-11 in the game. However, it was the Lady Bucs who capitalized on limited scoring chances as midfielder Arna Heimlund beat Memphis goalkeeper Kari Rawe as she finished a cross from Stacy-Jo Fletcher in the 60th minute of the match.
The Lady Tigers had only four shots on goal with their best chance to score in the final minutes when a shot by midfielder Kirsty Marr nearly sailed through the hands of CBU goalkeeper Jennifer Kett. Each goalie made four saves in the contest. CBU midfielder Anna Rask had a game-high five shots while forward Robyn Smart led the Lady Tigers with three shots.
Memphis will travel to Western Kentucky Friday night to conclude their two-game exhibition season before opening the regular season at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex next Friday at 7 p.m. with a match against SEC-for Mississippi State.
