TULSA, Okla. (UCFKnights.com) – The UCF women’s soccer team completed its weekend road sweep with a 3-1 win over Tulsa at Hurricane Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The overcast weather couldn't slow down the Knights (8-4-1, 5-1 The American). Madison Murnin gave UCF a 1-0 lead over Tulsa (6-8-1, 2-4 The American) in the seventh minute.

Stefanie Sanders doubled the advantage in the 61st minute, dribbling the ball up the middle before taking a shot from 15 yards out. Just three minutes later, Piper Dotsikas added to the score, finding the back of the net in the 64th minute.

Tulsa tallied a marker in the 86th minute as Gabriella Borboa scored to avoid the shutout for the Golden Hurricane.
