ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - The UCF women's soccer team scored nearly every way possible. They clinched their sixth shutout of the season. They improved their unbeaten streak to six straight. All in all, Sunday night's 4-0 win over Florida Gulf Coast was a fitting end for the Knights' non-conference schedule.

Redshirt sophomore Megan Fish broke through with her first career goal when she headed Jennifer Martin's corner kick past FGCU keeper Brittany Brown in the 22nd minute.

The Knights (7-2-1) capitalized again in the 32nd minute when junior Kayla Darden sent a cross from the right side to senior Katy Ling in the box. Ling's shot was deflected and freshman Lena Petermann cleaned it up.

Petermann wasted little time in picking up her second goal of the night when she drew a foul in the box 77 seconds later to set up a penalty kick. She connected to give UCF a 3-0 edge heading into halftime.

In the 68th minute, senior Kristina Trujic powered through her first goal of the year after sophomore Amanda Wilkin found her outside the box to rest the score at 4-0.

The Knights continue their homestand Friday when they kick off their inaugural season in the American Athletic Conference against instate rival USF at 6 p.m. The first 1,000 UCF students to attend the match will receive early entry passes for the expected-to-sell-out UCF football game against South Carolina the following day.
