Three Lady Govs were named to the JSU/Adidas Gamecock Classic All-Tournament team; Freshmen Andy Quiceno, Tatiana Ariza and Natalia Ariza.

“We played really well the first half, probably the best 45 minutes we’ve played all season,” head coach Kelley Guth said. “We just didn’t put away our chances. We looked like we got a little comfortable in the second half. We didn’t execute and they scored two goals. We had a number of chances we should’ve scored.”

Defense holds strong, Lady Govs soccer remains undefeated

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsThe streak continues for Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team which claimed a 1-0 win against South Alabama, Friday, at the Troy Invitational.

“It was a pretty even back and forth game,” said head coach Kelley Guth. “The team worked very hard and I felt like we controlled the tempo of the game. South Alabama was very organized and very good at what they did. We had to make some adjustments to take away some opportunities. They had some good speed and athleticism up front, but our back line did very well.”

This time it was freshman Tatiana Ariza scoring the game winner, just six seconds before the break. A shot by freshmen Andy Quiceno in the 43rd minute led to a pair of Lady Govs corner kicks as the first half clock ticked down. With a 10-second countdown in progress, freshman Corey Osborn’s corner kick was scored by Tatiana Ariza to give APSU a 1-0 lead that would stand.

VMI serves as Lady Govs soccer season-opener

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsAustin Peay State University women’s soccer team opens its 2010-11 season with a 3:30pm, Friday match at Virginia Military Institute. The Lady Govs won the only prior meeting with the Keydets, 4-1, in Clarksville during the 2008 season.

Expectation-wise, the match will feature two teams with contrasting philosophies. Last season, Austin Peay struggled offensively, losing seven one-goal games, leading to a restructuring phase up front. Head coach Kelley Guth looked to answer a lot of those questions by bringing in freshmen Emily Kink and Joceline Quiceno to join the team’s returning leading goal-scorers in seniors Kellie Cannon and Monique Wong.

Austin Peay State University GovernorsAustin Peay State University women’s soccer team used a quick first-half spurt to take a 8-0 exhibition win against Freed-Hardeman, Friday night at Morgan Brothers Soccer Field.

Strong passing inside combined with a few well-placed serves from the midfield led to five first-half goals. The Lady Govs scored three more in the second half, including one off a corner kick.
