Mustangs prove their might

The SMU women’s soccer team hosted St. Mary’s Gaels Sunday at 1:30p.m. at Westcott field. Despite several shots on goal and double overtime the game ended in 1-1 tie.

Junior Logan May netted her third consecutive goal for the Mustangs in the 65th minute.  Two minutes later, the Gaels’ Daelyn Paul scored for St. Mary’s to tie the game.

“It was extremely hot, and St. Mary’s always comes out to play us hard. We knew it was going to be a tough game,” May said.

In the 60th minute Mustang Katherine Cox had a penalty kick that reflected off the goal post keeping the game scoreless.

According to SMU head Coach Brent Erwin, the ‘Stangs only had three subs for the entire 110 minute game.

“I’m proud of them. Good teams get results when they aren’t playing their best. There were moments when we didn’t play our best, but we still got our results,” Erwin said of the tie.

St. Mary’s is now 6-1-2. SMU is 5-2-2.

On Friday night the team traveled just a few miles out of town to Denton to defeat North Texas 3-2 in overtime.

It was a fight against the clock for both teams. The Mustangs rebounded twice for the win.  May booted goal number three to end the game.

North Texas made the first goal of the game in the 28th minute, and the second during the 63rd minute off of a penalty kick.

Ryanne Lewis and Shelby Hartweck netted SMU’s first two goals to tie the game.

Lewis, a sophomore, scored her first goal of the season just two minutes before the end of the first half, tying the game.

A half an hour later, Hartweck volleyed for the team’s second goal against the Mean Green, moving the teams into overtime.

May, assisted by midfielder Kristen Medeiros, scored in the 95th minute. It is her second consecutive game-winner.

“This team has improved so much and we are really working towards something,” May said. ” Just to contribute to the team and help out in any way that I can feels really good.”

The Mustangs move on to Houston to play in their first conference game this year against Houston Cougars next Friday.
