JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Lipscomb (9-3-1, 3-0) women’s soccer team will leave its road trip to Jacksonville with two more wins in tow as the Lady Bisons beat North Florida (4-6-2, 0-3) 2-1 on Sunday.
Lipscomb also defeated Jacksonville on Friday to give the Lady Bisons an undefeated start to ASUN play so far.
“Every conference win is awesome,” Lipscomb women’s soccer head coach Kevin O’Brien said. “We felt very comfortable at 2-0, but the penalty kick against us changed the entire momentum of the match.”
Junior Natalie DuBoise opened up the scoring action on the afternoon for the Purple and Gold as she placed a header over the Osprey keeper to give Lipscomb a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute. The goal was her fourth of the season, the second-best mark on the team.
Just after halftime, sophomore Lindsay Brent headed home her second goal of the season off of a cross from freshman Olivia Doak in the 52nd minute. The assist was Doak’s second on the year, giving her a team-high 14 total points.
North Florida earned one back in the 61st minute as junior Sarah Wasser slotted home a penalty for her second goal of the year.
“We really had to dig deep and defend well as a group since they were continuing numbers forward,” O’Brien said.
“I’m proud of how we stuck together and saw out the result on a very hot Sunday afternoon.”
- This was the 13th matchup between the two schools in the Division I era. Jacksonville leads the series 6-5-2, although Lipscomb has won the last two matches.
- Sophomore Maycie McKay led the Lady Bisons with three shots, including two on goal.
- Senior goalkeeper Anna Buhigas notched three saves in the win, giving her 77 on the year.
- Lipscomb outshot the Ospreys 12-8, with a 7-4 shots on goal advantage.
UP NEXT: After a long road streak, the Lady Bisons will be back at home on Friday at 7 p.m. against Stetson.
