Women’s Soccer Defeats Troy 6-2
The UAB women’s soccer team smoked Troy this Friday 6-2, scoring 3 goals in both halves and the first goal within the first two minutes of the game thanks to Johanna Liney with an assist from Sam Bradford.
At 21 minutes, Paige Hanks and Ashley Naumoff assisted Kirsten Ebert with a well-placed header for the Blazers second goal. Nearly one minute later, Hanks again assisted by giving Kimberly Fincher the third goal.
“Our goal was to come out and score as many goals as possible early in the game. We knew it was going to be a tough game but if you can score early you can get the other team down. We were three up right from the start and that’s a tall hill to climb no matter what team you are”, said head coach Harold Warren.
As the game moved into the second half, Kasey Johnson was able to score UAB’s fourth goal with a hand-ball penalty kick just three minutes after halftime.
Kasey Johnson turned right back around and assisted Jasmine Kauka in the Blazer’s goal streak.
As the game came to its last 15 minutes, Sharon Osterbind scored UAB’s final goal of the evening with an assist from Johanna Liney.
“We were definitely happy to score six goals in the game which against any team is a positive. We’ve got some real ambitions for the season. We didn’t play exceptionally well even though we got the six goals, which happens” said head coach Harold Warren.
Just when it seemed that the Blazers were about to skunk the Trojans, however, Troy came back and scored two back-to-back goals to bring the game 6-2.
“ I’m not happy that we gave away those last two goals. We need to get better even with the issues with all the subs and things. I think we got a little comfortable and we need to work on that. Building to the six goals was good. Possession was good at times, it was a bit spotty and a little predictable. It’s all about being able to start early and keep going, which he haven’t really done this fall. We could’ve finished the game six-nil but they kept fighting and earned their goals”, said head coach Harold Warren.
The Blazer’s aggression in the game was evident not only in their leading goals, but also in their 25-9 shot lead. Every time the Green and Gold had the opportunity to score a goal, they put all their focus into doing so.
The UAB women’s soccer team will be hosting their next game against South Alabama this Sunday, September 8, at 1 p.m. on the West Campus Field.
