Kit Loferski

Florida and Texas clashed Sunday in a 1-1 draw at the home football opening.

Texas (0-1-1) scored their first goal of the season in the 61st minute, when Carlee Allen headed in a Lexi Missimo corner.

With the end of regulation, Florida (0-1-1) found the equalizer in the 87th minute. The left-footed shot of graduate Kit Loferski from the top of the 18-yard box hit the far stick and kicked into it.

“I thought we could have the ball a little bit more,” UF coach Tony Amato said. “We’re good enough to connect a few passes once we’re in possession. Since today’s water break, I’ve thought we’ve done a much better job in the middle of the field by connecting what we’d call an extra pass. We’ve connected another ball, played by pressure and really started to change the game in our favor at that time “.
