Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team hosts Western Kentucky, 7:00pm, Friday, and Belmont, 2:00pm, Sunday to wrap up its current three-match homestand.

The Lady Govs have been impressive on the pitch, thus far, but will face a much greater test during the weekend set, which begins with a Lady Topper team (2-1) that is 5-0 all-time against the Lady Govs. Although much of Austin Peay’s punch has come from the offensive end, little question exists that its young defense will have to stand up in order to extend a current three-match win streak.
