Clarksville, TN – Claire Larose scored in the first half to lift Austin Peay State University’s soccer team to its first conference win over Tennessee Tech, 1-0, Sunday, at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field.
The Govs (6-2-1, 1-0-1 OVC) started out on the front foot, with Amber Bateman having a shot saved in the 9th minute.
The Golden Eagles (5-4, 1-1 OVC) did not muster much offensively in the first half, with only one shot total in the half.
The Govs’ pressure paid off in the 18th minute when Jade Dauriat slid a perfect ball through to Larose, who shot the ball on the ground to the right corner for a deserved lead. No other notable scoring chances occurred in the first half besides Jennifer Smith’s acrobatic volley off a corner going wide.
The second half started off with the Golden Eagles going forward more. Mary Parker Powell made an amazing save to tip a shot onto the crossbar in the 59th minute. Brice Bement made an immediate impact off the bench again, having a shot that went wide. Bateman had another shot that was blocked, but the Golden Eagles had no real clear cut scoring chances.
The Govs resume play next Friday, at SIU Edwardsville.
