Memphis, Tenn. -
The University of Memphis women’s soccer program returns to action Friday at 7 pm against Arkansas-Little Rock at Echles Field.
The Lady Tigers are coming off of a well-played match against previously 25th-ranked LSU in Baton Rouge, La., on August 21. Vendula Strnadova and Ashley Berra netted two goals that were more than enough to give the Lady Tigers the season opening victory as the Lady Tiger defense stymied the LSU offense to five shots on the game with none on goal.
