MOBILE, Ala. - Mean Green soccer  removed Florida Atlantic  from the Sun Belt Conference soccer tournament by a score of 1-0.
An early Carly McDowell header off an Adame assist in the ninth minute gave North Texas the lead, and they never let it go. It was a defensive struggle, but the Mean Green controlled midfield and never gave the Owls a good look.
North Texas now looks ahead to a semifinal match against Western Kentucky , a team the Mean Green faced a week ago in Bowling Green, Ky. The Hilltoppers handed the Mean Green its sole loss in conference play, and North Texas will look to even the season series for an opportunity to play in the Sun Belt Conference tournament championship game.
The semfinal will take place at 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2, at the University of South Alabama. The game can be viewed online at www.sunbeltsports.org
