Despite a small burst of offense in the second half, the Lady Mustangs lost this year’s only preseason match to Missouri 3-2 on Saturday.
Missouri held a 2-0 lead over SMU into the 77th minute, when Freshman Bari Kesner cut the lead in half with a score in her first collegiate match.
The Mustangs allowed another Missouri goal in the 86th minute. Even with the game essentially over, junior forward Shelby Redman found the back of the net with 21 seconds left in regulation.
While the result may not have been to SMU’s liking, the display of scoring ability from Redman and Kesner were a welcome sight.
SMU is set to host University of Louisiana at Monroe on Friday at 6:30 p.m. for its regular season home opener.
