The WKU Soccer team’s (7-9-3, 4-5-1) campaign was over when they were defeated 5-1 by North Texas (12-5-2, 7-2-1) in the Conference USA tournament’s opening round on Wednesday morning in Charlotte, North Carolina.
North Texas got the game going quickly, scoring three goals in the opening period. Jenna Sheely, a senior from North Texas, caused problems for WKU by giving Mean Green two goals and an assist.
The Hilltoppers’ lone goal was scored by WKU senior Kayla Meyer. In the 53rd minute of the game, redshirt senior Lucy Lyon and fifth-year Lyric Schimdt helped Meyers score.
Just two minutes into the second half, senior Madison Drenowatz gave the Mean Green their fourth goal of the contest. The game’s sixth goal for UNT was scored by Summer Brown, a freshman.
