SMU men win Conference USA showdown over Tulsa

The #6 SMU mens soccer team won a Conference USA showdown with their arch-rivals #17 Tulsa Wednesday night in Dallas 3-2.  It was a wild start to the match that saw both teams score in the opening five minutes of play.  Tulsa scored first through Jake Dobkins in the 3rd minute and SMU equalized soon after as the Tulsa keeper Michael Murray misjudged a longball from SMU defender Adam Still.  Murray allowed the ball to bounce in front of him and go over his head into the empty net for a howler.

Tulsa overcame the mistake and wsas back in front just before halftime Corey Alberston got on the end of a cross making it 2-1 at the half.  SMU regrouped at the break and came out strong in the second half.  It was another weak goalkeeping effort from Murray that allowed SMU to tie the game.  Arthur Ivo tallied his goal in the 62nd minute on a free kick awarded to SMU following a Tulsa hand ball violation. Ivo fired a shot from 40 yards out that hit the goalie and trickled over the goal line to knot the game at two. The goal was Ivo's sixth of the season.

In the 69th minute, Robbie Derschang netted the winner. After receiving the ball at midfield from Ivo, Derschang dribbled 40 yards down field before sending the ball into the far upper 90 from 20 yards out. The goal was Derschang's fifth of the year and second game-winner.

"We were in a battle," said head coach Tim McClements. "Tulsa is a very good team. I thought we came out of the gates a little bit sluggish and gave up a goal. Then we scored a very fortunate goal, so it was kind of a night of crazy goals. But I think that they guys hung in there and did the things that they needed to do. It was a battle from start to finish, and Robbie's goal at the end - we were really happy that he scored. Any time you win in the conference, you take it."
