NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb women’s soccer team added another win to an already record-breaking season defeating Samford 2-0 Sunday night at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex.

“It was a great performance by our girls,” said head women’s soccer coach Kevin O’Brien. “From the opening whistle we were on the front foot, which we haven’t been all season. We’ve had more defensive game plans in a lot of games and have been good on the counter-attack.”

“We said going into the game that after the performance at Vanderbilt, we felt like we could open up a little bit and play a little more of an attacking style. And we came out tonight and that’s exactly what we did.”

After the first 45 minutes of regulation, the two teams went into halftime with a scoreless game. Lipscomb attempted 11 shots in the first half while Samford only took four.

Returning for the second half, the team maximized the offense ultimately leading to two goals scored by sophomore Ellen Lundy.

“The two goals were great efforts by the team, and I just happened to be the one who put them in,” Lundy said. “Anna Lail had an awesome cross, and I just had the ability to put it away.”

Lundy picked up the first goal of the night in the 69thminute after Lail’s successful assist.

“In the second half, I felt like Samford picked it up,” O’Brien said. “It was a really tight game up until that point when Anna Lail squared the ball and Ellen Lundy scored.”

Later in the 81st minute, Lundy drilled a shot that rolled past the goalie to give the Lady Bisons the 2-0 lead.

“The second goal was just an unlucky touch by the keeper, and I just happened to be there and get lucky enough to score that one,” Lundy said. “We just had a great team effort and we’re really excited to build off this. We deserved to win this game.”

Lipscomb advances to 5-3-1 on the season while Samford falls to 4-4.

The Lipscomb women’s soccer team celebrated the holiday weekend by bringing home a 2-0 victory over Austin Peay Monday night.
Lipscomb’s record improves to 2-2-1 on the season while APSU falls to 1-3-0.
“It was a great performance Monday night from the team,” said Lipscomb head coach Kevin O’Brien. “Each player came out with the right focus and commitment….and when we do that, we can play with anybody.”
The Purple and Gold maintained a 2-0 lead going into halftime after drilling two shots early in the game.
Ellen Lundy scored the first goal for the Lady Bisons in the 21st minute after a cross from Anna Lail who was credited with her first assist of the year.
Niamh Rawlins recorded the team’s second goal after booting in a shot near the sidelines in the 27th minute to advance Lipscomb’s lead to 2-0 in the first half.
The Lady Bisons continued to display solid defense in the second half holding the Lady Governors to only two shots while taking five of their own.
“I certainly feel like we are moving in the right direction,” O’Brien said. “With 10 new players this season, it’s taken some time to learn how to play together.
“I wouldn’t say we’ve arrived but boy have we grown in a positive way over the last three weeks.”
Sophomore goalie Anna Buhigas, 2-2-1 so far this season, brought home five saves recording all five in the first half alone.
APSU’s Katie Emig played the first half for the Lady Governors picking up five saves. Making three saves, Lindsey Todd took over for Emig for the final 45 minutes of regulation.
• Sophomores Ellen Lundy and Niamh Rawlins scored their first goals of the season.
• The Lady Bisons placed 10 shots on goal out of a total 14 shots taken.
• Freshman Emily Rogers made her fourth collegiate start while freshman Paige Miller made her third.
• Lundy and Rogers led the team in shots with three each and also in shots on goal each with two.
• Lipscomb possessed seven corner kicks while APSU finished the night with two.
• The Purple and Gold improved their record against APSU to 3-8-1 with all three wins over the Lady Governors being shutouts.
Up next: The Lady Bisons will gear up for another home match Friday Sept. 5 as they host Western Carolina at 7 p.m.
“We will have the day off Tuesday, and then it’s back to work on Wednesday,” O’Brien said. “We’ll play a strong Western Carolina team on Friday, and hopefully we can avenge another loss from last season.”
