SMU Edged By Rice, 2-1, In Double Overtime
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (SMU) - The SMU women's soccer team was defeated in heartbreaking fashion this afternoon in a 2-1 loss to Rice in double-overtime. The defeat drops the Mustangs to 11-8-1 on the year.
SMU is 11-5-1 all-time against the Owls. Rice has had the upper-hand in recent matchups,
however, winning three of the last four meetings. Most recently, the two teams faced each
other in last season's Conference USA Tournament, a 2-1 Rice 2OT win. SMU scored first
in that game, a 32nd-minute free kick goal from Courtney Smith
. Rice tied the game in
the 70th minute and eventually won in the 101st minute. That game marked two-straight
postseason meetings between the two schools, with SMU advancing past the Owls in the
2010 C-USA Tournament on penalty kicks after OT.
ABOUT THE OWLS
The Owls currently hold a record of 4-4-2 (1-0-0 C-USA) on the season, and are coming
off of a win at home against Tulsa on Friday. Junior defender Hayley Williams was named
Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after playing all 200 minutes
in a 1-0-1 Rice weekend that included the team's second shutout of 2012, a 2-0 win over
Sam Houston State. Rice is led offensively by Holly Hargreaves, who has nine points (4g,
1a) on the season.
Rice posted a 1-1 tie against Oklahoma last Friday, two days before SMU would beat the
Sooners 3-0. The Owls also lost at home to TCU on Aug. 31, another team that the Mustangs
have defeated this season.
NOTES FROM FRIDAY
Kenzie Scovill scored her fifth goal of 2012 against Houston on Friday night, and now
leads SMU in the category.
Sophomore Rikki Clarke scored her first goal of the season to tie the game at 2-2 in
the 51st minute on Friday.
Amelia Ambrose picked up her first point of the season on an assist on Scovill's goal.
TERRIFIC IN TEXAS
SMU is 105-23-11 all-time against schools from Texas. The Mustangs are 1-1-1 this season,
with a win at TCU, a loss at Baylor, and a tie at Houston on Friday. SMU is undefeated
against eight schools (Houston Baptist, St. Mary's (TX), Sam Houston State, Southwest
Texas State, Stephen F. Austin, TCU, Texas Tech, UTSA)
Sophomore Shelby Redman added a goal and an assist to her season totals on Sunday
against Oklahoma. She has now scored in three-straight games, and leads the Mustangs
with 11 points (4g, 3a). Redman is third in the C-USA in points (11), tied for fifth in goals
(4) and fifth in shots (25). Redman also ranks in the top-100 nationally in points-pergame
with 1.38 (92nd).
Mallory Baum NOMINATED FOR 2012 SENIOR CLASS AWARD
Senior midfielder Mallory Baum has been nominated for the 2012 Senior CLASS Award, the nominating organization announced on Tuesday. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be a senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition.
"Getting nominated means that I am getting recognized for all of my hard work off the field, as
well as my team's hard work on the field," Baum said. "I am on that list with some great people
on some great teams, and the nomination is awesome."
Baum, a native of Keller, Texas, was named to the Second Team NSCAA All-
Central and First Team All-Conference USA in 2011, and was named to the
Preseason First Team All-C-USA team in August. She was also a member of
the C-USA All-Freshman team in 2009.
In the classroom, Baum is studying Electrical Engineering with biomedical
specialization and math as a double major. She has the intentions of going
to Dental School upon graduation from SMU. Her current cumulative GPA is
a 3.7. She has also put a lot effort into helping the local community. Baum
volunteered with Tarrant Area Food Bank, where she packed grocery bags
of food and helped organize a Thanksgiving feast, parties and more for less
fortunate families. She also assisted with Catholic Charities of Fort Worth,
playing and bonding with children who had been removed from unhealthy family situations.
Baum also helped with Mayfest, Inc, a festival in Fort Worth created as a nonprofit corporation
with a purpose to raise funds for community nonprofit programs and for continued improvement
and awareness of the Trinity River and surrounding parks through a combination of
volunteerism and community resources.
Baum scored her first goal of the 2012 season on Sunday in SMU's win over Oklahoma. The
victory brought the Mustangs to 4-4 on the season, heading into the team's first C-USA game,
at Houston, on Friday. Baum believes this nomination is a symbol of what could be to come for
