Women's Soccer Fall After Goal Given Up In the First Minute
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – UAB’s lone goal in the first minute of the game was the deciding goal in the Southern Miss women’s soccer team’s 1-0 loss on Friday night.
Caroline Kehrer scored her sixth of the season off a shot just outside the box to open up the game. Despite UAB having the lone goal of the game, Southern Miss outshot the Blazers 16 to 11.
Mindnich got her second start of the season in Mobile and recorded three saves.
The Golden Eagles continued to put pressure on the Blazers throughout the night but couldn’t get past Kelsey Daugherty who recorded five saves. The two sides went back and forth on shot attempts and got chippy throughout the game. The two teams totaled for 11 fouls.
The Blazers were also handed two yellow cards for hard challenges on Southern Miss.
The Golden Eagles put pressure on the Blazers’ defense until the very last minute of the game when Stephanie Garcia challenged the goalkeeper but couldn’t secure the equalizing goal. The Golden Eagles fall to 6-7-3 on the season as the Blazers stay perfect at home in conference play.
The Golden Eagles continue to conference play on Sunday at 2 p.m. as they face Middle Tennessee.
