The Mean Green soccer team advanced to the semifinals of the Conference USA Tournament with a 4-1 victory over Florida International University on Wednesday.

UNT took complete control of the game early on, outshooting FIU 13-2. Senior forward Lynda Hercules scored the first goal of the match in the 21st minute.  Soon after, senior defender Kelsey Hodges scored on a penalty kick in the 36th minute to give the Mean Green a 2-0 lead going into halftime.

FIU’s freshman midfielder Johanna Volz scored a goal in the 53rd minute to cut the Mean Green lead to 2-1, but North Texas answered back with a goal by sophomore midfielder Karla Pineda in the 72nd minute and sophomore forward Amber Haggerty in the 82nd minute.

It was a rematch of last year’s Sun Belt Conference Tournament finals, which had the Mean Green winning 1-0.

The Mean Green will be back in action Friday at 7 p.m. when the team will play the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. UNT beat Charlotte 3-0 at home on Oct. 13.
