Lady Govs soccer shutout again in OVC play


APSU Women’s Soccer

Austin Peay State University GovernorsMartin, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team lost its second-straight Ohio Valley Conference match, 1-0, at UT Martin, Friday afternoon.
It also was the second shutout suffered by the Lady Govs this season which is uncharacteristic of a team that has led the league in goals scored through non-conference play. Watching the Lady Govs take back-to-back 1-0 losses, head coach Kelley Guth was left disappointed.

“It was a battle the whole match,” Guth said, “just like every conference match is going to be. The fact is, our offense has to step up and get it done.”

While Austin Peay was on-target throughout the match, putting five of its seven shots on goal, Skyhawk keeper Lauren Mackenzie was perfect in making five saves. Lady Govs senior Hannah Jones put the first shot on goal after Skyhawk foul in the fourth minute. Sophomore Jocelyn Murdoch would put another on frame in the 17th minute, but Mackenzie again made the stop.
UT Martin used a barrage of shots to score the game’s only goal. Jenni Duffy followed her own corner kick with a shot off APSU keeper Carley Newman, which was quickly put back by Mary Thompson and deflected again off Newman. A third shot by Katie Imperiale, who entered the game only two minutes prior, found the back of the net.

The Lady Govs put five more shots at Mackenzie in the second half, but nothing made it through. Murdoch, along with freshman Joceline Quiceno each had two shots on goal, while Jones along with freshmen Emily Kink and Tatiana Ariza also added shots.
Austin Peay returns to action with a 2:00pm, Sunday game at Murray State.
