Golden Eagles move to 3-0 after win at Louisiana-Monroe

-

The Southern Miss women’s soccer team remains undefeated after netting three goals in the second half of their road matchup against Louisiana-Monroe on Aug. 27, winning the contest by a score of 3-1.

Despite being held scoreless for the entire first half, the Golden Eagles started the contest with an aggressive offensive approach. The team attempted six corner kicks and 15 total shots to end the half, compared to the one shot recorded by the Warhawks.

The aggressive approach would pay off for Southern Miss in the second half. Senior Beth Coleman opened up scoring for the team with a goal in the 51st minute of the contest. Coleman would strike again in the 65th minute, scoring another goal on a tap-in and finishing the game with two goals on two shots. Junior Stephanie Garcia was also a big offensive contributor in the contest. Garcia’s goal in the 53rd minute came just two minutes after Coleman’s first goal and gave the team a 2-0 lead to start the second half.

With the Golden Eagles owning a comfortable 3-0 lead in the last stretch of the contest, Warhawks midfielder Erika Wiest made things interesting with her score in the 82nd minute, putting the score at 3-1, but the Southern Miss defense held on to seal the victory.

Overall, the Golden Eagles outshot the Warhawks 25 to six in the contest. Goalies Kelly Brambhatt and Kendell Mindnich contributed to the team defensively by combining for four saves in the goal.

The win marks the second straight season the Golden Eagles have started with a 3-0 record. They will look to make it four straight when they return home to face Grambling State on Aug. 31.
