ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – The No. 24 UCF women’s soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to SMU at the UCF Soccer Complex on Thursday evening.

The Knights (8-5-1, 5-2 The American) battled SMU (9-5-1, 4-3 The American) on the pitch, holding a 13-6 edge in shots in the contest.

UCF out-shot the Mustangs in both halves, turning up the intensity in the second period. In a match that looked to be headed to extra time, a late play from SMU turned the tide.

In the 81st minute, the Mustangs were able to find the back of the net, as a combination play set Allie Thornton up for what turned into the game-winning goal.

The Knights close out their home regular season on Sunday, hosting Houston at 1 p.m. UCF will recognize its eight-member senior class prior to the start of the game.

The UCF women's soccer team is in its sixth season under head coach Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak. Click here or call (407) 823-1000 for ticket information.
