LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Freshman forward Devany Savage's first collegiate goal was a big one, as it propelled the University of San Diego women's soccer team (1-0-0) to a 1-0 upset win over the 19th-ranked University of Southern California (0-1-0) Friday afternoon in the season-opener for both teams at McAllister Field.
After both teams battled to a scoreless first half in which USD controlled the time of possession and outshot the Women of Troy, 5-3, the Toreros would not be denied. In the 59th minute of action, junior striker Stephanie Ochs bowed a cross into the box, where Savage was able to corral the pass, and punch it into the back of the net to give USD the victory.
"This was a good start to the season for us to beat a competitive program like USC," stated head coach Ada Greenwood. "I think we really set the tempo early on and had great chances to score in the first half, then we got a great goal in the second half form Devany."
The Toreros outshot the Trojans 10-8 and had a 5-2 advantage in corner kicks.
Courtney Parsons picked up the shutout win in goal for the Toreros as she allowed no goals on eight shots while recording six saves. Her counterpart, Shelby Church, was saddled with the loss for the Trojans as she allowed one goal on 10 shots, while recording two saves.
The Toreros will return to action on Friday as they host the USD Tournament at Torero Stadium. USD will square off against the University of Arizona in the night cap at 7:30 p.m.
