Batesville, Ark. (Sept. 26, 2017) – Coming off a hard loss to William Woods on Saturday evening, the Central Baptist College women's soccer team looked to rebound this afternoon against in-state American Midwest Conference opponent Lyon College. Despite again pitching a second half shutout, the defense allowed two first half goals as the Mustangs (0-10, 0-4 AMC) fell to the Scots (3-5-1, 3-2 AMC), 2-0.
"The team played great today," said head coach Chris Murphy. "It was a complete 90 minute show of effort, intensity and resilience. It was the kind of match that programs are built on. Could not be more proud of the team this evening, and excited to see how they grow together from this point forward."
Sara Calzada (FR/Arlington, Texas) stopped 13 Lyon shots, while Sabrina Torres (SR/LaVerne, Calif.) and Kady Johnson (SO/Greenbrier, Ark.) were both able to break down the Scots defense and put a shot toward the net.
Next up for the Mustangs is the AMC Game of the Week on Saturday against Stephens College in Columbia, Mo. Kickoff for that match is set for 11 a.m.
