JONESBORO, Ark. (3/18/11) – The Arkansas State soccer team played well but ultimately fell at Memphis 2-0 in its second spring game of the year.
ASU held the Tigers scoreless through the first 75-minutes of action until Memphis' Christabel Oduro gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead scoring with 15:22 left in the game. Memphis then scored with 4:52 left in the game when Rasheed Ansari put one in the net.
ASU got solid performances from Lyndsey Patterson, Ashley Jackson and Stasha Siers.
"We went down fighting against a very talented and well coached team," said ASU head coach Tafadzwa Ziyenge. "Rather than sit back in fear we actually attacked and played well as a team. The girls put up an encouraging performance tonight."
