UCF Posts 2-2 Draw at George Mason

Fairfax, Fa. ( – In its first road trip of the season, the UCF women's soccer challenged George Mason on Sunday afternoon in Fairfax, Va. The Knights were forced to settle with a draw for the second time in as many matches and move to 0-1-2 on the young season.

The Knights got off to a hot start, with Dayana Martin putting a shot off the inside of the post and into the back of the net to give UCF the lead with her first shot of the game in the third minute. George Mason answered the Knights' early goal within minutes – equalizing the match before the 10-minute mark.

UCF would continue to pepper the Patriots defense, putting up 18 shots in the match, compared to George Mason's seven. Following the break for halftime, Orlando native Kristen Scott beat the keeper to give the Knights the lead for the second time.

The lead didn't last long, however as Mason's Hotaling took a chance at the goal from midfield, just sneaking the ball over DeLisle's head.

Six Knights played in the full 110 minutes in the two-overtime match, Caroline DeLisle, Olivia Lewis, Konya Plummer, Madison Murnin, Olivia Smith, and Mollie Rouse; while 16 total players saw the pitch for UCF.

The Knights next contest will take place Sunday, Sept. 8 in Gainesville, Fla. as UCF takes on the University of Florida. The Gators are currently 2-1 on the year, after qualifying for the SEC Soccer Tournament as an eight seed last season.
