FINAL | Memphis, Tenn.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Sophomore Lauren Hodgdon netted her first goal of the season on an assist by senior Kylie Cook in the 70th minute of the game, but the Memphis offense proved too strong as it earned a 4-1 win over Houston Soccer on Sunday afternoon in American Athletic Conference play.

The Cougars used both senior keepers in goal as Cami Koski made her 55th career start – a program best -tallied five saves in 50 minutes of action and was relieved by Sydney George, who notched six saves in 40 minutes of action.
