SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team (7-5-0, 0-1-0) fell 1-0 to No. 18 Santa Clara (7-3-1, 1-0-0) in their first WCC match of the season Thursday evening.

The Broncos scored the game-winning goal in the 31st minute when Julie Johnston finished a cross from Sofia Huerta. Seven of the Toreros' nine shot attempts came in the first half, however none of them could find the back of the net.

Mariah Butera and Emily Dillon led the Toreros' offensive attack, putting all of their five combined shot attempts on frame.

The Toreros will be back in action on Saturday when they play at San Francisco (5-6-2, 0-2-0) at 2:00 p.m. The Dons are coming off a 2-0 home loss to BYU.
