The Missouri State women’s soccer team dropped its season opening match at North Texas, 2-1, Sunday afternoon with temperatures near 100 degrees.

It didn’t take the Bears long as freshman Brooke Williams put Missouri State ahead in just the second minute of play. North Texas tied the game in the 16th minute when Michelle Young made a great run and beat Missouri State goalkeeper Jessica Teahan. UNT’s Julie Lackey would get the game winner in the 75th minute off a free kick.

Brooke Williams had two of the three shots for the Bears with fellow freshman Shelby Stewart getting the other. UNT outshot Missouri State 12-3 for the match.
