APSU Soccer falls to Lipscomb 2-1, Alec Baumgardt nets Govs’ first ASUN goal

APSU Soccer - Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Sophomore Alec Baumgardt scored on the second half’s opening kickoff, but Austin Peay State University (APSU) soccer dropped its ASUN Conference opener, 2-1, to Lipscomb, Saturday, at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field.

Lipscomb (4-4-1, 1-0 ASUN) scored a third-minute penalty kick goal and extended its lead 10 minutes later on a goal from 2021 ASUN Defensive Player of the Year Shelby Craft.

Senior Chloé Dion corralled the Bisons’ next three shots, while Baumgardt and Case tallied APSU’s two first-half shots in the 31st and 32nd minutes, respectively.
Baumgardt found the back of the net after taking the second half’s opening kickoff from junior Tori Case at midfield and rocketing it towards the Bisons’ net. The ball slipped past Bisons’ goalkeeper CJ Graham, who attempted to stop the ball with her foot. The score was Austin Peay’s (2-4-3) first ASUN Conference goal and the second for Baumgardt this season.
The Governors added four more shots in the half, with the final being a Baumgardt attempt that sailed just over Lipscomb’s net but were unable to best the Bisons’ defense.
