The deciding goal was scored by UCF’s Ellie Moreno in the 43rd minute as she slotted one past the outstretched arms of sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Martinez. USF used an onslaught of opportunities to try to level the score, but none found the back of the net.
The loss also puts USF at a 15-0 deficit in the War on I-4 Standings. USF has been rarely competitive since its inception.
