DENTON, Texas – In the C-USA opener for both squads, the Old Dominion women’s soccer team (6-1-1, 0-1-0) suffered its first loss of the 2019 season at North Texas (6-3-0, 1-0-0) by a 1-0 score at the Mean Green Soccer Stadium on Friday night.

I’m pleased with how we battled, but they took the chance and that’s the difference in a game like this one was.”
