Led by a Kirstin Robertson brace, APSU soccer (5-2) remained unblemished at home following a 3-0 thrashing of Little Rock (3-4). In the offensive showcase, nine Govs combined for 16 shots, seven of those being on frame.
In the 50th minute, freshman Claire Larose opened up the scoring with a right side finish assisted by fellow freshman Morgan Drawdy.
In the 69th minute Robertson doubled the lead with a shot placed in the lower left corner. 15 minutes later it was Robertson again, firing a shot to the opposite side of the net and putting APSU ahead 3-0 with six minutes left. Robertson now sits on six strikes for the season.
On the other end of the field sophomore Mary Parker Powell helped APSU to continue to blank their opposition two games in a row with five saves. Powell’s efforts came up big for the Govs in the final few moments which featured a diving penalty save to her left.
Head Coach Kelley Guth told letsgopeay.com, “Hopefully this gives us confidence we need heading into the conference schedule, but like I told the girls in the post-game talk, it is just another game next week. Sometimes we put too much onus on conference play, we need to approach it as just another game. It is just the game of soccer, let’s go do what we do, and do it better than we did last week.
