MIAMI - Florida International struck for three second half goals over a four-minute stretch to pull away for a 5-2 win over the visiting Rice soccer team Sunday afternoon in Miami, Fla.
FIU opened the scoring with a goal on its first shot in the fifth minute, but Rice soon came back with the equalizer. In the eighth minute, junior midfielder Quinny Truong blasted away from 21-yards out and found the back of the Panther's net at the top right corner. The score was Truong's fifth goal of the season and ninth of her career.
The Panthers went back in front on an goal by Ashley Shim, and held the 2-1 lead into the intermission. FIU then scored in the 58th minute before quickly stretching the margin to 5-1 with two more goals by the 62nd minute.
Te five goals is the most the Owls had allowed since 2008, but Rice continued to fight. The sophomore forward tandem of Lauren Hughes and Holly Hargreaves got the Blue & Gray back on the board. In the 64 minute Hughes found Hargreaves with pass, who converted on a shot for her team-leading sixth goal of the season.
Rice is now 5-7-2 overall and 3-4-0 in C-USA action. FIU improved to 8-7-0 on the season and 4-3-0 in league play.
The Owls are back home for each of the next two matches. Rice next hosts new C-USA foe Old Dominion on Friday (Oct. 25) at 7 pm. The Blue & Gray complete the weekend homestand on Sunday (Oct. 27) against East Carolina. The Owl seniors will be honored in their final home appearance of the regular season.
