APSU snaps losing streak

The Lady Govs soccer team snapped a three game losing streak on Senior Day with a pair of goals from old and new players in route to a 2-0 win over Alabama A&M (1-6).

It was senior Mary Ruth Locastro and sophomore Jennifer Smith whose goals pushed a proficient offensive performance into a win.

APSU took strike 20 times, which was more than three times the shots from Alabama A&M (20-6). The Lady Govs were only able to record one of the five shots on target.

Freshman Mary Parker Powell started the game, and completed the first half without much to do. Junior Lindsey Todd saw action for the first time since the Lipscomb match, on Sept. 4, and recorded two saves.

In the 12th minute freshman Renee Semaan loomed over a free kick at the top right edge of the box. Semaan in-swinging cross was whipped in, and two shots were fired away by the Lady Govs.

With the ball still in the flurry of opportunities, senior Gina Fabbro struck through it towards goal, but the goal is credited to Locastro via deflection.

All five seniors recognized in the pregame took a shot for the goal during the match, along with seven more Lady Govs.

APSU doubled their lead in the 64th minute when freshman Melody Fisher played a ball outwide to Fabbro to take the lead 2-0.

Fabbro worked the ball inside and Smith tucked it home for her second goal of the 2016 campaign.

APSU (4-3) will travel to Fort Worth, Texas, to take on Texas Christian University on Friday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m.
