C-USA WOMEN'S SOCCER SHOOTING STARS (Sunday, Oct. 11)
No. 16 UCF won its fourth straight match with a 4-1 victory over Colorado College to move into sole possession of first place in the C-USA standings.
The Knights picked up goals from seniors Nikki Moore (Virginia Beach, Va.), Becca Thomas (Burlington, Wash.) and Courtney Whidden (Palm Harbor, Fla.) along with junior Amanda Martorana (Middleburg, Fla.) in a match in which they outshot Colorado College 27-13. That equaled their season-high for attempts as UCF also had 27 shots two days ago against UTEP.
Colorado College freshman Brittany Lyman (Arvada, Colo.) spoiled the Knights attempt for a seventh shutout.
UTEP sophomore MF Katie Dorman (El Paso, Texas) headed in the game's only goal off a corner kick play at the 78:15 mark for a 1-0 road win at Southern Miss.
The Golden Eagles defense held the league's top offensive team scoreless for the first 78 minutes.
Tulsa scored three second-half goals to hand Marshall just its third loss of the season and TU knocked off the visiting Herd, 4-1. Senior MF Courtney Chadney (Humble, Texas) gave TU the go-ahead goal in the 51st minute on a penalty kick, and senior Shannon Locke (Port Coquitlan, B.C.) scored 13 minutes later on a free kick taken by senior Sarah Greene (Coppell, Texas). Classmate Hannah Taylor (Tulsa, Okla.) netted the final goal of the contest at the 68th minute and Chadney picked up the assist.
Marshall's Megan Tabler (Ashland, Ky.) scored her fourth goal of the season as she put the Herd on the board first in the sixth minute.
SMU freshman Shelby Hartweck (Grapevine, Texas) scored two goals within the first 12 minutes as the Mustangs defeated East Carolina, 2-1.
East Carolina sophomore Amanda Malkiewicz (Forked River, N.J.) netted her fifth goal of the season and gave her the team lead in points with 14.
Rice opened the scoring in the 12th minute on a penalty kick by junior Kate Edwards (Westlake Village, Calif.), then she netted her second goal of the match in the 60th minute as the Owls defeated Memphis, 2-1.
Memphis junior F Ashley Berra (Cordova, Tenn.) posted her 10th goal of the season in the 28th minute. Freshman Averi Hallman (Spokane, Wash.) notched her team-leading fifth assist of the season on Berra's goal. Hallman assisted Berra on three goals this weekend and, with the goal today, Berra has now posted a goal in three straight matches for Memphis. Berra moves in to sole possession of fourth place in the career goal ranks at Memphis with her 21st career goal.
Sunday's match between Rice and Memphis will air on the CBS College Sports Network on Tuesday, October 13, at 7 p.m. Eastern/6 p.m. Central.
