NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lipscomb women’s soccer team travels to Clarksville, Tennessee Monday for its second road game of the season to take on the Austin Peay Lady Governors.
"I'm sure it's going to be another competitive match between our programs,” said Lipscomb head coach Kevin O’Brien. “We know each other well and even have multiple players that came from the same club (Tennessee Soccer Club) team.”
Both teams are on the prowl for a victory after suffering losses Friday night. The Lady Bisons, 1-2-1 on the season, fell to Middle Tennessee 2-1 in overtime while the Lady Governors, 1-2-0, were shut out 5-0 by Alabama.
"Every match is an opportunity to learn and grow as a team,” O’Brien said. “A tough lesson we learned on Friday was that we can't afford to start slow, ever.
“Each opponent we face has qualities that can hurt you if you’re not prepared to address them with the right energy, commitment, and tactics."
Freshmen Natalie DuBoise, Mary-Stewart Schwarz, and sophomore Shelby Auterhoff lead the Purple and Gold in shots each claiming six.
DuBoise currently ranks second in the Atlantic Sun in goals with two while sophomore goalie Anna Buhigas ranks second in the conference in saves with 14.
Austin Peay ranks second in the Ohio Valley Conference in shots taking 30. They also rank second in the conference in goals recording five so far this season.
Lipscomb is 2-8-1 against Austin Peay playing 11 matches with the Lady Governors in the last 14 years.
"Austin Peay is a strong team that we lost to in a close, come-from-behind match last year,” O’Brien said. “We've got all the motivation we need. Now we need to couple the motivation we have with the proper execution on the pitch."
The contest begins at 7 p.m. at Morgan Bros. Field. Following the clash with Austin Peay, the Lady Bisons come back to the “Music City” to host Western Carolina Friday Sept. 5.
