SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 loss to the second-ranked University of Portland Pilots Friday evening in a West Coast Conference match on national television in front of 1,549 fans at Torero Stadium.
With the loss, the Toreros fall to 9-6-2 overall and 2-2-0 in the WCC. With the win, the Pilots improve to 16-1-0 overall and 4-0-0 in the WCC.
The Pilots scored the game-winner in the 51st minute of action, as Taylor Brooke crossed the ball directly in front of the Torero goal to Danielle Foxhoven, who then hit a one-timer into the back of the net from about three yards out to give the Pilots the 1-0 victory.
Action in the final third for both sides was limited, but San Diego junior forward Stephanie Ochs made the most of a late opportunity and nearly equalized in the 58th minute when her shot from distance went off the cross bar.
The Pilots outshot the Toreros 8-3, and each team had four corner kicks.
USD's Courtney Parsons was saddled with the loss in goal for the Toreros as she allowed one goal and recorded two saves. Portland's Hailee Young was credited with the shutout win as she allowed no goals and recorded one save.
The Toreros will return to action on Sunday as they host the Gonzaga University Bulldogs in a 1 p.m. WCC match at Torero Stadium.
