The SMU women could not have asked for a better start to the conference season as they opened with a bang.  The SMU women’s soccer team upset #19 UCF 1-0 tonight at Westcott Field.  It was the programs first win over a ranked opponent since late 2002. The win moves the Mustangs to 5-4-0 on the season, while the Knights drop to 5-2-2.

After the match was nearly a stalemate for just over an hour, the Mustangs capitalized on a UCF foul, 25 yards from the Knights' goal. Sophomore Courtney Smith sent a low liner into the box that Kaitlyn Eidson got a foot onto, redirecting the shot past UCF goalkeeper Aline Reis. The goal was the senior’s first of the season.

Despite being outshot 13-5 by UCF, many Knight attempts coming late in the game, SMU came up with the one that mattered most. Aided by a strong performance from the backline, senior goalkeeper Courtney Webb had stellar night, recording five saves and earning her third shutout of the season.

SMU will be back in action Sunday as the team hosts Southern Miss (3-4-3, 0-0-1). Kickoff is set for 2 pm at Westcott Field.
