The Lady Govs’ soccer team is peaking at the right moment in the season. They are currently on a six game undefeated streak, going 5-0-1 in stretch, all against Ohio Valley Conference foes.

A strong performance on both offense and defense during the stretch, outscoring opponents 14-1, has helped APSU rebound from starting from 0-2 in OVC play to clinch a berth in the OVC tournament which they missed last year.

On Friday, Oct. 12, the Lady Govs mauled Eastern Illinois, 6-1, continuing to let loose on offense, carrying over from their previous game against Belmont, scoring nine goals in two games.

Two days later, the Lady Govs would end a game against SIU Edwardsville on Sunday, Oct. 14, in a 0-0 tie in double overtime.

The Lady Govs would return to home and defeat both Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State in impressively in consecutive games, 2-0, on Friday, Oct. 19 and Sunday, Oct. 21.

APSU’s impressive run has helped moved the team record to 9-7-1, 5-2-1 in OVC play, pushing the team into a tie for second place with Eastern Kentucky.

The team will look to improve on the impressive run in their final two games of season, as they travel to take on Morehead State on Friday, Oct. 27, before getting a chance to square off with EKU on Sunday, Oct. 28, in a game that could decide sole possession of second place heading into the OVC tournament.
