Kentucky started well despite having to play down for the early stages when Courtney Raetzman went off injured and there were no substitutes ready.
Kentucky could well have hit the lead in the eighth minute when Arin Gilliland was able to create space and get a shot away only for her effort to hit the woodwork and bounce wide.
That solid opening for Kentucky was denied from finding any joy by some impressive keeping from Bubba Makela which then allowed UTSA to start creating chances.
Happy Orere-Amadu was looking the most likely for UTSA as she was able to create and get away plenty of chances throughout the opening 20 minutes.
Laylla Da Cruz had two chances in the 23rd minute as her initial shot was blocked before she followed up on the rebound which was saved by Kayla King.
Kentucky got back in to the match around the half hour mark but eventually the match evened up as the sides cancelled each other out and headed to the break scoreless.
UTSA had a series of corner kicks to open the half but Charlotte Husoe's efforts were cleared away by the defense before Kentucky started to take control around ten minutes in to the half.
In the 62nd minute Kentucky had their goal as Arin Gillard crossed for Stuart Pope who was able to head home the lone goal of the match.
That put Kentucky firmly in control as they restricted the Roadrunners well, as the physicality of the match really broke up the play.
UTSA tried to find a winner with plenty of substitutions late on aiming to attack but it just wasn't to be as they fell to another loss.
