NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb women’s soccer team recorded a 7-0 shutout against Alabama A&M Sunday afternoon at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex.
Lipscomb improved their record to 1-1 while Alabama A&M falls to 0-1.
“Overall it was a good performance,” said Lipscomb head coach Kevin O’Brien. “The second half looked better than the first.
“The total game I was pleased with the girls. They worked really hard in extremely tough conditions.”
Freshmen Natalie DuBoise and Mary-Stewart Schwarz made their first career goals during the competition.
“We’ve got freshmen that will be contributing all season long,” O’Brien said. “So to see them get their first collegiate goal is exciting.
“It can only help us. When you get young players that kind of experience over the course of a four-year career, it’s invaluable.”
Alesondra Colbert, Caroline Chadwell, and Jolene Muir also recorded their first goals of the season.
DuBoise nailed a penalty kick in the 36th minute to give the Lady Bisons the early 1-0 lead.
Two minutes later, Colbert scored her first goal of the season after Lyndie Donegan passed the ball into the box to give Colbert the scoring opportunity.
“During our halftime talk we got into them a little bit,” O’Brien said. “We have standards but I don’t think they came out with the right mentality.
“I think they responded very professionally in a way that makes the coaching staff proud.”
Muir landed a goal in the net after a lofted ball from Chadwell placed the ball in front of the net in the 61st minute.
At the 63-minute mark, Colbert came back with her second goal after a save attempt by goalie Marissa Oehler got away opening up the goal for Colbert.
Assisted by Karli Crosby, Chadwell picked up a goal in the 69th minute while Schwarz picked up her first career goal after a corner kick in the 83rd minute.
DuBoise drilled her second shot of the day at the 86th minute after a corner kick by Emily Shuler.
“In the end it was awesome,” O’Brien said. “We got to see some young girls who were featured in the preseason, but we hadn’t seen them in a real competitive match.
“It was great to see them running around and playing together. I think they did a great job.”
