Oct. 12, 2003
Houston, Texas-- - The University of Memphis women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to Houston Sunday snapping the Lady Tigers' two-game winning streak.
The Lady Tigers outshot the Cougars 17-15 in the match and forced UH goalkeeper Sarah Webster to make 12 saves, but they could not convert on any of their opportunities.
The Cougars tallied their lone goal just over two minutes into the second half when Nikki Hawkins scored on an assist from Nicole Aubuchon.
The Lady Tigers' leading scorers, juniors Kirsty Marr and Yuiko Konno, combined to put all six of their shot attempts on goal with Marr leading the team with four, but Webster was up to the challenge fending off all six attempts.
Memphis returns to action this weekend with a pair of home C-USA matches at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex. The Lady Tigers play Tulane Friday at 7 p.m. and Southern Miss Sunday at 1 p.m.
