Sept. 21, 2001
ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Memphis women's soccer dropped a 2-0 decision to St. Louis in its first Conference USA match of the season at Robert R. Hermann Stadium on the SLU campus on Friday night.
Riding a two-game winning streak, the Lady Tigers came into tonigh'ts contest looking to upset the Billikens - last year's Conference USA runners-up. Instead, Memphis was blanked, 2-0, and outshot 12-9 in front of nearly 1200 fans at Hermann Stadium.
St. Louis scored its first goal when Billiken Amy Lucier converted on a nifty 30-yard floater that slipped just under the crossbar. The Billikens extended their lead on a Jamie Perry goal that defelcted off the post.
The task does not get much easier for the Lady Tigers this weekend - they head to Milwaukee, Wis., to take on C-USA defending champ Marquette at 4p.m. on Sunday.
