- Following a hard fought match in Tulsa on Friday, the Southern Miss women's soccer team (3-5-3, 0-1-1 C-USA) fell on the road to Conference USA foe SMU, 3-1, on Sunday at Westcott Field.
SMU's Mallory Baum got the Mustangs on the board in the fourth minute when her shot found the inside half of the left post and ricocheted in.
In the 35th minute, Kenzie Scovill blasted a shot in to senior keeper Hannah Vanderboegh who made the initial save but Scovill tracked the ball on the rebound and was able to bury it on her second effort.
Southern Miss responded in the 81st minute as senior Elisha Tarbell found the back of the net by way of the header to make it 2-1 following a Mustang foul. It was Tarbell's second goal of the year.
The Mustangs (6-4-0, 2-0-0 C-USA) got their two-goal cushion back, however, just five minutes later when Kaitlyn Eidson got her second goal of the season off the header from Mallory Baum's cross.
The Golden Eagles were unable to regain any ground in the final five minutes as SMU maintained their unblemished home record.
Coach Scott Ebke's squad will return to Hattiesburg after spending much of September on the road. They will host conference foe Colorado College on Friday, Sept. 30, before welcoming UTEP on Sunday, Oct. 2, for the "Pink Out" game.
Kickoff for the Colorado College match is set for 4 p.m. while the match against the Miners is set for 1 p.m. Both matches will be played at the Southern Miss Soccer Complex and admission is free.
