FORT WORTH – On the 17th day of the eighth month, more commonly known as 817 Day in Fort Worth, TCU defeated their cross-town rival SMU 1-0.
Gracie Brian scored TCU’s lone goal in the 22nd minute of the first half.

“First game of the season; tough, well-fought game. I’m happy with the results from our group,” coach Eric Bell said. “We will watch the tape and hope to get better, but that’s a quality SMU squad and a cross-town rivalry. We are happy to come away with the victory.”
