ASU Soccer falls at North Texas Sunday

Denton, TX (ASU) – The Arkansas State women's soccer team held North Texas scoreless for the first 80-minutes of action but the Mean Green scored two goals in the final 10-minutes of action to take the match, 2-0 Sunday afternoon in Sun Belt action.

The Red Wolves fell to 7-10-1 with a 3-7 conference mark while UNT improved to 12-5-2 with a 7-2-1 Sun Belt record.

ASU defended North Texas well in the first half facing nine shots but holding the Mean Green scoreless at the break. 

The Red Wolves continued to hold strong until Carly McDowell fired in a deflected shot from Kelsey Hodges in the 81st minute (80:03). The Mean Green scored their final goal when Ellen Scarfole and McDowell hooked up in the 86th minute (85:54).

"We tried hard overall, especially in the first half, we just lost concentration and they capitalized on it," said head coach Tafadzwa Ziyenge. "Overall the girls put of a very good fight it was unfortunate that they couldn't be rewarded with a win."

ASU was outshot in the contest 14-5 including a margin of 7-2 in shots on goal in favor of the Mean Green.

The Red Wolves will wrap up regular season action at UALR on Friday. Game time against the Trojans is set for 7 p.m. in Little Rock.
