The Lady Govs looked to open their senior weekend with a victory over Ohio Valley Conference foe Jacksonville State at Morgan Brothers Field, but could not hold on through the second half as the Lady Govs fell to #3 JSU 5-0.

The Lady Govs accumulated eight shots in the first half, but an unlucky call in the box lead to a penalty kick for JSU. Courtney Hurt scored off the penalty kick to give the Gamecocks a one to zero lead in the first half.

The second half belonged to the Gamecocks as they took 13 more shots on veteran netminder Nikki Filippone. The Lady Govs couldn’t stop JSU’s offense as they net one goal in the 71st minute to slowly put the Lady Govs out of reach. The Gamecocks then picked up goals at the 73rd, 82nd and the 86th minute to seal the win.

The Lady Govs look to bounce back and complete the senior weekend with an OVC match on Sunday, Oct. 18 against #11 ranked Tennessee Tech at Morgan Brothers Field.
