Women’s soccer falls to Middle Tennessee in conference opener, 2-0
The UAB women’s soccer team fell to Middle Tennessee, 2-0, in its conference opener Friday night.
“We controlled the tempo for the majority of the match,” said head coach Harold Warren. “We just didn’t capitalize on the good opportunities we had.”
In the 15th minute, UAB’s senior midfielder Kirsten Ebert had a shot on goal, but Middle Tennessee’s sophomore goalkeeper Kelsey Brouwer recorded the save. In the 26th minute, UAB had another opportunity to score when senior midfielder Jasmine Kauka had a strike on frame, but Brouwer prevented that goal as well.
Middle Tennessee’s first goal came minutes into the second half. In the 48th minute, sophomore forward and current Conference USA offensive player of the week Tori Hawkins put a shot in the top right corner.
In the 64th minute, another Middle Tennessee player, sophomore midfielder Kate Loye, put the ball in the same spot, scoring the second goal of the game.
UAB had other opportunities to score, but with four saves Brouwer wouldn’t let the Blazers on the scoreboard. (UAB’s sophomore goalkeeper Courtnie Nouthern recorded three saves in the game.)
Middle Tennessee also led the game with shots 13-9.
“We played well enough to win,” Warren said. “You have to give credit to Middle Tennessee. They just kept fighting and scored two nice goals.”
UAB (7-3-0) stays on the road to face Marshall next on Sunday, September 29 at 12 p.m.
