Nashville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) soccer team was unable to overcome a pair of second-half goals and dropped a 2-0 decision to Belmont, Thursday at E.S. Rose Park.
Austin Peay (3-6-2, 0-2) goalkeeper Peyton Powell kept the score even early, making two of her four first-half saves in the first 14 minutes of the match to keep Belmont (5-4-1, 2-0) off the scoreboard. However, the Governors responded to the early Belmont shots on target with Alec Baumgardt and Claire Larose firing shots on goal in the 15th and 17th minutes, respectively.
Trailing 2-0, Delanie McKeon fired the APSU Govs final shot on goal of the match in the 78th minute, but she was unable to best Belmont goalkeeper Andrea Leitner and Austin Peay State University dropped its second-straight match to start Ohio Valley Conference play.
