Cincinnati, OH – Austin Peay State University women’s soccer dropped a 1-0, double-overtime, decision at Xavier, Sunday.
Not only was it the Lady Govs first extra-time game this season, it also was the first time APSU has been shutout since October 15th, 2010 vs. Morehead State ending a streak of 16 straight games with a goal.Xavier’s Taylor Dearbaugh scored the gamewinner in the first minute of the second overtime period on a shot from just inside the 15-yard box. APSU sophomore keeper Haylee Shoaff made seven saves on the day for the Lady Govs.
Austin Peay played the 100-minute contest without making substitution, but seemingly picked up steam in the second half. After all, the Musketeers were coming off a double-overtime win against Eastern Kentucky, Friday, and APSU was playing on two days rest after a Thursday match at Lipscomb.
In the second half, the Lady Govs put four shots on goal only to see Xavier keeper Katie Markesbery make four stops. The Lady Govs managed some close range attempts as well, but the Musketeer defense was well-positioned each time, coming up with a pair of game-saving blocked shots in the final second of the first overtime.
Despite the loss, Shoaff was named the Copies in a Flash Player of the Game.
Now Austin Peay has to prepare itself for Ohio Valley Conference action with Southeast Missouri coming to Morgan Brothers Field for a 7:00pm, Friday contest.
