Blazers Top Blue Demons, 4-0
CHICAGO - Playing in a steady rain throughout the match, the visiting UAB Blazers were able to withstand elements and post a 4-0 win over the DePaul Blue Demons. With the loss DePaul drops to 5-2-1 overall and 0-1-1 in Conference USA play.
UAB scored their first goal in the 11th minute as Adrienne Suffridge scored on a goal assisted by Cindy Penaranda. That score would remain the same throughout the first half and into the intermission.
In the second half, the Blazers struck three more times. At 49:25, Denis Peters scored to give UAB the 2-0 advantage. The final two goals of the match came at 77:38 and 80:45 by Jennifer Calalang and Jenny Rynders, respectively.
DePaul was unable to get much going offensively as they were outshot, 17-5. Combine the soggy field and UAB's 16-5 advantage in fouls and it made opportunities tough for the Blue Demons.
After dropping two of the last three matches, DePaul looks to get back on the winning track. The Blue Demons travel to Memphis and TCU next weekend for a pair of Conference USA matches.
