Sept. 30, 2012
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A hat trick by Tine Schryvers and three assists by Christabel Oduro and Kylie Davis helped Memphis (8-3-0, 4-0-0 C-USA) cruise past Marshall (6-6-0, 2-2-0 C-USA) 7-1 on Sunday at Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
Memphis raced to a 2-0 lead as Oduro found Schryvers for two goals, 10 minutes apart. Davis served a ball from midfield to the left flank and Oduro crossed it into the box where Schryvers fired a shot past the Marshall keeper for her fourth goal.
In the 31st minute, Oduro found Schryvers again on a similar cross from the left side. Schryvers made a nifty finish as she used her back heel to redirect the ball in front of her before ripping it to the right post for the score.
Oduro increased the Memphis lead to 3-0 in the 39th minute with a beauty from the left side of the box. Oduro dribbled down the left side and blasted a shot to the far post for her ninth of the season. With two assists and a goal in the first half, Oduro has registered a goal or an assist in eight-straight matches. With the goal she ties Shoko Mikami for fourth-place all-time with 28 career goals. Oduro climbs four points shy of Mikami for fourth in career points with 73.
Marshall got a goal back in the 41st minute with a strike from Myka DeMarco. Erin Simmons served the ball upfield and DeMarco blasted the shot from 35 yards just under the cross bar for her first goal of the season.
Christa Strickland served a goal kick just past midfield in the 67th minute that later resulted in a Memphis goal. The attempted header by Marshall went further down field allowing Kaitlyn Atkins to catch up to it for a one-versus-one with the Marshall goalkeeper. Atkins beat the keeper to the left post for her second goal of the season, unassisted.
Oduro posted her third assist of the afternoon in the 74th minute as she and Davis found Taylor Isenhower for a goal from five yards away. Davis received the cross at the top of the box from Oduro and a touch pass from Davis set up the Isenhower goal, her fourth of the season.
Just over a minute later, Davis registered her third assist of the afternoon as she set up Madison Oyer for her second goal of the season. Davis dribbled up the middle of the field and served Oyer at the right side of the six-yard box and Oyer finished the goal to the left post.
Memphis finished with 24-7 edge in shots with 13 of those shots being on goal. The Lady Tigers improve to 16-3-3 when putting 20 shots or more on the board with 10 or more of those shots being on goal.
