Austin Peay Sports Information
Clarksville, TN – After holding tough against the Ohio Valley Conference’s most prolific offense in the first half, Austin Peay State University could not stem the tide against Jacksonville State over the final 45 minutes, falling 5-0 to the Gamecocks, Friday, at Morgan Brothers Field.Austin Peay (4-10-0, 3-3-0 OVC) saw some of the momentum from last weekend’s sweep at Southeast Missouri and SIU Edwardsville disappear, suffering its first shutout in nearly a month.
Jacksonville State (9-6-0, 4-2-0 OVC) gave itself a little separation in the OVC race.
The first half was balanced, with both sides putting up eight shots.
Jacksonville State got on the board thanks to Courtney Hurt penalty kick in the 11th minute following a handball call in the box, but the Gamecocks offense, leading the OVC at 2.78 goals per game, was otherwise stymied in the opening period.
Despite nine total saves from junior Nikki Filippone, with more than a few being of the acrobatic variety, the second half belonged to the Gamecocks. Jackie Rush scored in the 73rd minute, and that was followed less than two minutes later by a Lindsey Jackson tally.
Shelby Olszewski did what she could for the offense. In her season’s third appearance after missing two months due to injury, Olszewski got forward time and again for Austin Peay, attempting five shots and putting three on net to lead the squad. Caroline Robinson was solid for the Gamecocks in net, securing six saves for the clean sheet.
“We’ve got to refocus ourselves,” said head coach Kelley Guth. “We have to focus on Tennessee Tech, come out and play better on Sunday.”
Austin Peay seeks a quick bounce-back, with Tennessee Tech coming to town on Sunday. The Lady Govs host the Golden Eagles in a 2 p.m. tilt that doubles as Austin Peay’s Senior Day – before the match, seniors Claire Pultz and Frankie Carbajal will be honored for their contributions to the program.
