Women's Soccer Try To Spoil Houston's Perfect Home Record
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Southern Miss women’s soccer look to spoil the Houston Cougars’ perfect home record on Friday in their sixth game of the season.
The Golden Eagles travel to the Carl Lewis Complex for a game under the lights that’s set to kickoff at 7 p.m. The Golden Eagles are 1-1 this season on the road after picking up a 3-1 win at Louisiana-Monroe and a loss at Ole Miss.
Houston returns home after an 18-day road stint and a recent 4-1 loss to C-USA opponent, Rice last weekend. Although the Cougars scored first, the Owls would score four unanswered goals to give Houston its second loss of the year. Houston started its 2017 season 2-0 with wins against Texas Southern and Northern Arizona.
The Cougars have had six different players score their eight goals this season while junior goalkeeper Rachel Estopare had a season-high 11 saves in her game against Rice and has allowed only one goal at home.
The last match between the two sides resulted in a 2-0 win for the Cougars in 2011.
Becky McMullan and Miah Zuazua lead the Golden Eagles with points through the first five games. Senior McMullan still leads the team in scoring after her three-goal opening weekend and Zuazua is second in Conference USA with her three assists this season.
The Golden Eagles look to return to scoring ways after being shut out for the first time last Sunday in Oxford.
