APSU Women’s Soccer

Austin Peay State University GovernorsJacksonville, AL – Freshman Andy Quiceno scored two goals and freshman Tatiana Ariza had three assists as Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team won, 4-0, against Southern (La.), Friday night at the JSU/Adidas Gamecock Invitational.

Austin Peay improves to 6-1 overall, while Southern (LA) falls to 0-5.

It marked the third time this season, and second straight game, a Lady Govs player came one goal short of a hat trick. Sophomore Jocelyn Murdoch scored two goals in the Lady Govs Sunday loss at Troy.

After an abysmal performance at Troy, head coach Kelley Guth spent the week focusing on bettering the Lady Govs attacking mode and staying organized behind the ball. Those efforts played out well against an undermanned Jaguar team, Friday.

“It was an improvement on Sunday’s loss to Troy,” said Guth.”It was important for us to come out and put the ball in the back of the net. We did that well tonight. Now we’ve got to look forward to Sunday and be able to come out strong for a full 90 minutes.”

Tatiana Ariza scored the game winner and followed with assists on each of the next three goals. Freshman Joceline Quiceno scored the second goal, assisted by Tatiana, while her sister Andy was the benefactor of Tatiana’s next two assists.

The Lady Govs will be tested, Sunday, when they face Southeastern Louisiana, in a noon, Sunday, contest to wrap up this four-match road trip.
