The University of Cincinnati women’s soccer team dropped a close one in Dallas, Texas as SMU outlasted the Bearcats 2-1 on Sunday afternoon. Megan Cravenor scored for UC in the 49th minute, but the lone goal wasn’t enough to get Cincinnati to a .500 record.

Just 10 minutes into the match, the Bearcats (6-8-0, 2-2-0 AAC) found themselves down 1-0 after Jessica Bartol notched a goal, but UC buckled down a fought their way back into the match. Despite outshooting SMU in the first half, they still entered the locker room down by a goal.

The intermission didn’t diminish Cincinnati’s hunger as they came out pressing on the offensive end and knotted the game within the first five minutes.

Jae Atkinson setup a corner kick in the 49th minute and arced the ball into the center of the box. The service fell to the ground and was kicked around by both teams until junior Megan Cravenor controlled the ball at the penalty kick dot and tapped home the equalizer. The second half goal was Cravenor’s first of the season.

The score remained tied at 1-1 for nearly nine minutes until UC was called for a hand ball inside the penalty box in the 58th minute.

Freshman redshirt Natalie Smith drew the huge task of defending the SMU penalty kick, but the Mustangs’ Shelby Redman drove a strike by the goalkeeper to reclaim a one-goal lead, which the Bearcats would not recover from.

Cincinnati returns home this coming weekend as they host UCF on Friday night and USF on Sunday. Friday’s game against the Knights is slated for 4:30 p.m. ET, which is four hours before UC’s football game versus Temple.
