Cougar red meets Mean Green
Cougar Sports Staff
The UH soccer team will attempt to get back on the winning track as it prepares for a two-game home stand against North Texas and Louisiana-Lafayette.
The Cougars (1-2-0) opened the season with a 2-1 win over Rice on Aug. 31, but are coming off two consecutive shutout losses to New Mexico and Texas-El Paso. UH was outscored, 10-0, in the two matches.
Sophomore forward Leslie Guevara and the rest of the Cougar soccer team will attempt to get back over .500 while facing North Texas on Friday and Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday.

The Cougars face UNT at 7 p.m. today at Robertson Stadium. UH is winless in three games against the Mean Green. While it was shut out in two games at Denton, UH was able to play UNT close at Robertson Stadium, where it narrowly lost a shootout in 1999.
The North Texas Mean Green is coming off a 6-1 win over Texas Women's University, and at 4-0, is off to the best start in school history since 1996. Mean Green junior forward Marilyn Marin scored three goals against TWU to become UNT's all-time leading scorer with 46 goals.
UL Lafayette visits Robertson at 1 p.m. Sunday. UH lost its first and only game against the Ragin' Cajuns, 1-0, in 2001.
Louisiana-Lafayette is coming off a 2-1 win over Oral Roberts, its first win of the season. The Ragin' Cajuns (1-2-1) could come into Houston with a .500 record, as they play host to Northwestern State today.
The Cougars haven't lost a soccer game at home since the Cajuns visited Houston last season. The team doesn't go back on the road until a Sept. 27 meeting vs. DePaul in Chicago.
