Faux Tigers: Memphis Tigers women's soccer crush LSU Tigers in first round

The Tigers hosted LSU this week in the NCAA tournament first round on Sunday Nov. 14. This matchup was be a game to remember as both teams duked it out at the Murphy Soccer Track Stadium.

The Tigers are on a mission this postseason and their focus is on winning every game in the tournament to bring home the National Championship. The Tigers punched their fourth straight bid to the NCAA tournament, but were yet to push beyond the first round. 

The Lady Tigers are fresh off a conference championship win and they did not expect to stop winning going into the tournament against LSU. LSU was no stranger to the tournament as this was their sixth straight appearance in the tournament.

The first half was a silent battle, with both teams heading to the locker room with a blank scorecard. It was not until the second half when Memphis opened a barrage of goals against LSU.

Jocelyn Alonzo was first to find the back of the net, assisted by Tanya Boychuk. A few minutes later, her teammate Aubrey Mister joined in the fun – scoring with the help of Caroline Duncan. Four minutes after that, Bryana Buttar put the LSU Tigers away with a game-sealing goal, assisted by Mister. 

As a whole, the Memphis Tigers took 19 shots – 8 of which were on target. That contrasts with LSU's 5 shots and 3 shots on goal, all of which were saved by Memphis goalie Elizabeth Moberg. 

After coming up with a 3-0 victory, Memphis will take on #2 Duke in Durham, North Carolina. Along with that, the first-round-exit curse has been broken.
