Off a late-game corner kick by senior forward Demi Stokes, senior forward Sarah Miller scored with a header, but the goal was taken off the board due to a foul.

It was a quiet night for freshman keeper Thordis Aikman who needed only one save to secure her first career shutout, USF’s first of the season.
