15th Ranked Lee Women Win 2-0 At Christian Brothers

Monday, October 21, 2019
 Always the aggressor and always pushing forward, the Lee women's soccer defense can never be overlooked. The 15th-ranked Lady Flames are almost assured to advance in the polls after defeating GSC opponent Christian Brothers University 2-0 Sunday afternoon on Signaigo Field.

The loss for the Lady Bucs was only the third of the season. Their record stands at 4-2-1 in GSC play and 9-3-1 overall. The surging Lady Flames improved to 5-1 in the conference standings, 9-2 overall. In eight of the wins, the Lady Flames have held their opponents scoreless.
Lee remains on the road next weekend facing University of Montevallo on Friday and Auburn Montgomery on Sunday.

The Lady Flames dominated the first 45 minutes but the contest remained scoreless at the half. Lee fired eight shots and placed three on target. Christian Brothers was limited to four shots and one on frame.

The second 45 minutes was a different story. With just over four minutes (49:10) deep into the second half, sophomore Avery Engels drilled a shot into the lower-right corner of the goal to put Lee up 1-0. It was her fourth goal of the season. At the 53:06 mark, junior Kelsey Yoder picked up a loose ball that was banged around after a corner kick and gave the Lady Flames the insurance score as she knocked in her second goal of the year.

"It was a very important win for us today. This trip is always very difficult and demanding on the body," pointed out Lee head coach Chris Hennessey. "Our performance throughout the game was good. We applied ourselves well all over the field and had some very passages of play during the 90 minutes. To get two wins on the road is never easy and the attitude and character the girls showed today was fantastic."

Lee's domination showed in the final stats. The Lady Flames fired 18 shots to only five for CBU. It was also rapid fire at the goal for Coach Hennessey's team. It placed 11 on frame to just two for the Lady Bucs. Taylor Green turned away two shots on goal by the Lady Bucs and picked up her ninth win of the year, while Riley Chafin was kept busy with eight saves for the losers.    

The Lady Flames battled for nine corner kicks while CBU was awarded five. The Lady Bucs were whistled for 10 fouls and had one ejection. Lee had seven fouls but only two in the second half.
