Clarksville, TN – Despite losing a pair of sister-act scoring machines in Tatiana and Natalia Ariza  and Andy and Joceline Quiceno  to graduation at the end of last season, Austin Peay State University’s tradition of high-scoring siblings looks to still be going strong.
Freshman Sophia Fabbro  notched her first career goal and her sister Gina scored twice to give Austin Peay a 3-1 victory against Eastern Kentucky in its Ohio Valley Conference opener, Friday.
The Lady Govs (2-7-0, 1-0-0 OVC) win their OVC opener for the second straight year. Eastern Kentucky falls to 2-8-0 (0-1-0 OVC).
The Lady Govs got going quick in this one, with the younger Fabbro slamming home the rebound from a Caroline Wistrom  shot to give Austin Peay a lead in the sixth minute.
In the 17th, her sister got in on the action. A quick combo from junior Courtney Sheppard  and senior Claire Pultz  gave the elder Fabbro a chance to beat her defender off the dribble, and she smashed a shot into the lower left corner of the net to put Austin Peay up 2-0.
Eastern Kentucky’s attack was stymied in the first half, with the Colonels held to just six shots. However, the visitors picked up the pace in the second half, forcing five saves from netminder Nikki Filippone  – the junior Canadian became the first Austin Peay keeper to play the full 90 minutes this season.
Filippone’s shining moment came in the 53rd minute. A penalty in the box gave the Colonels a chance at getting on the board, but Filippone pulled off an incredible save to hold Eastern Kentucky at bay.
The Colonels did get a goal thanks to a 62nd-minute cross from Paige Larkin that was headed in by Katie Bright. But Austin Peay kept the pedal to the metal and got an insurance goal from Gina Fabbro  in the 81st minute, who collected a through ball from sophomore Merritt Monger  and slotted it into the lower-left corner to put it out of reach.
Filippone got the win and snapped a six-match losing streak for the Lady Govs, making six saves in the process. Anna Hall made four saves for the Colonels in the loss.
Austin Peay returns to action Sunday when the Lady Govs travel deep into Kentucky for a noon contest against defending OVC Tournament champion Morehead State.
