SMU Advances to AAC Championship Semifinals; Plays Memphis Friday
Mustangs Advance on Penalty Kicks, 3-2

STORRS, Conn. (SMU) – The No. 3-seeded SMU women's soccer team advanced to the American Athletic Conference Championship semifinals, winning in penalty kicks, 3-2, at the Joseph J. Morrone Stadium Wednesday. SMU goalkeeper Catie Brown recorded back-to-back diving penalty-kick saves, and Claire Oates scored the winning penalty kick attempt to propel SMU over UCF.

Deadlocked, 1-1, after two overtime periods, both teams converted two of the opening three penalty attempts. Between two straight saves by Brown, Oates sealed the Mustang victory as she converted SMU's fourth PK attempt. Vanessa Valadez and Allie Thornton also converted their attempts.

Trailing 1-0 in the 71st minute, Oates scored the SMU (12-5-2) equalizer, heading in a Haley Thompson corner kick. Oates now has nine goals this season, 19 in her career. Thompson now has eight assists this year, nine in her career.

UCF (9-8-2) stuck first, as Carol Rodrigues scored in the fifth minute of the game.

SMU will play No. 2-seed Memphis Friday at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. CT in the AAC Championship semifinals. The game can be seen on the American Digital Network.

Ponies beat Memphis 1-0 today on a late Claire Oates goal. SMU is now almost definitely an NCAA tournament lock. American championship on ESPNU Sunday at 1.

Highlights from today (what an assist! from Herron!):



So proud of this team for the turnaround this season and so happy for the seniors for helping turn this thing around and getting us back to the NCAAs - but first let's win The American Sunday!!!!

Go Ponies!
