Memphis scored a pair of goals in the first 12:15 of the game en route to a 3-2 victory over the UConn women's soccer team on Sunday.

The Huskies (7-8-3, 5-4-0 American) enter the tournament with momentum after defeating Temple 3-2 on Friday at Morrone Stadium. All-Conference Second Team member Vivien Beil (Jena, Germany) scored a pair of goals to vault the Huskies.

UConn ended the season tied for fourth in The American Conference with Memphis but due to head-to-head tiebreaker the Tigers are the No. 4 seed and the Huskies are the five-seed. The two teams matched up in Memphis on Oct. 8 and the Tigers jumped out to a 3-0 advantage early in the second half. UConn battled back with goals from Regan Schiappa and Yamilee Eveillard but fell just short in the comeback effort, losing 3-2.

The Huskies have had success in The American Championship since joining the league in 2013. UConn is 5-2-1 all-time and won two conference tournament titles (2014, 2016). Last season the Huskies lifted the trophy at Morrone Stadium after beating SMU in The American Championship game, 1-0.

The winner of Wednesday's match will play top-seeded UCF on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. in the semifinals. Follow our social media platforms to keep up with all the action in The American Championship.
