Box Score

HOUSTON - The University of Houston women's soccer team battled UCF to a 0-0 double overtime tie at Robertson Stadium Sunday.

"We battled at every position," head coach Susan Bush said. "We found a way to get a result, and that's the difference between two weeks ago and this week. We finally figured out if you play with passion, it can make up for a lack of skill sometime. We played with passion at every position today."

Houston was aggressive throughout the match, outshooting UCF 15-11 in the contest, getting eight shots on frame.

The Cougars had several chances to put the game away in overtime. One opportunity came in the third minute of the first overtime, when UCF goalkeeper Aline Reis attempted a diving save, leaving an open goal for senior forward Jessica Zavalza, but her shot attempt sailed high, just over the crossbar.

Another chance came for the Houston in the second overtime when Freshman Alexis Weaver found herself one-on-one with Reis, but stumbled just before she could get a shot off.

UP NEXT
The Cougars get back on the road as they head to Huntington W. Va., to face Marshall at 6 p.m., Friday.

"This weekend built a lot of confidence," Bush said. "We are back in the hunt, we just have to take it one day at a time. We are looking for a new prospective and concentrating on what's right for us right now."
