GREENVILLE, N.C. – The UCF women's soccer team (7-5-1, 2-3-1 AAC) went on the road Thursday night to pick up an important win late in the season over East Carolina (7-8-2, 2-3-2 AAC) in Greenville.
It took 35 minutes for the Knights to open the scoring, as Ariel Young netted her second goal of the 2021 campaign. Senior Madison Murnin earned her third assist of the year, sending the ball into the box that Young was able to head into the back of the net.
Just minutes after halftime, Katie Bradley added to the UCF lead, volleying a loose ball in the box past the ECU keeper for her second goal of the year. Knights' goalkeeper Caroline DeLisle made seven saves in the contest to earn the shutout, her sixth of the year and the second in a row.
