Women's Soccer Picks Up 2-0 Win at Temple

PHILADELPHIA – The UCF women's soccer team picked up a big 2-0 win on the road against Temple on Thursday night at the Temple Sports Complex.

"I'm really proud of the team for a great performance tonight," Associate Head Coach Tim Sahaydak said. "We've had a bit of a break from games so I'm happy that we came out sharp and ready to compete."

Mallory Olsson had herself a night, scoring both goals for the Knights. Her brace was the third of her career and her first of the season.

It marked the second UCF brace of the year. Kristen Scott scored twice against FGCU on 9/28.

The game started with both teams feeling each other out for the better part of the first half. UCF controlled the possession the entire half, and it paid off in the 43rd minute when Scott found the foot of Olsson who put it over the Temple goalkeeper's outstretched glove to give the Knights a 1-0 lead.

Scott returned from injury making her first appearance since the FGCU game, her assist was her first of the year and her seventh point.

Olsson added her second goal of the night in the 60th minute off of a set piece that ricocheted off of the turf, and she got her head on it to give the Knights a 2-0 lead.

Caroline DeLisle was stellar yet again with the 22nd clean sheet of her career. She had five saves on the night leading the Knights to their fourth shutout of the season.

UCF returns home for the first time since Sept. 4 to take on SMU on Oct. 9 at 1 p.m. The game will be streamed on ESPN+.
