Defense holds strong, Lady Govs soccer remains undefeated

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsThe streak continues for Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team which claimed a 1-0 win against South Alabama, Friday, at the Troy Invitational.

“It was a pretty even back and forth game,” said head coach Kelley Guth. “The team worked very hard and I felt like we controlled the tempo of the game. South Alabama was very organized and very good at what they did. We had to make some adjustments to take away some opportunities. They had some good speed and athleticism up front, but our back line did very well.”

This time it was freshman Tatiana Ariza scoring the game winner, just six seconds before the break. A shot by freshmen Andy Quiceno in the 43rd minute led to a pair of Lady Govs corner kicks as the first half clock ticked down. With a 10-second countdown in progress, freshman Corey Osborn’s corner kick was scored by Tatiana Ariza to give APSU a 1-0 lead that would stand.
