UAB women’s soccer defeats Old Dominion, 2-0
The UAB women’s soccer team (10-5-1) beat Old Dominion (1-10-2) 2-0 on Sunday, October 20 in Norfolk, Virginia.
The victory came just two days after the Blazers fell to Charlotte 1-0 in double overtime at Transamerica Field.
But on Sunday afternoon, the team controlled the game, scoring twice in the first half. The match marked the Lady Blazers’ tenth victory of the season, a feat they haven’t achieved since 2009.
“We had a tremendous first half,” head coach Harold Warren said. “I thought we did very well, and scored two nice goals. In the second half we sort of got off our game but you’ve got to give credit to Old Dominion; they came out and played really well in the second half and were all over us.”
In the 35th minute, junior midfielder Johanna Liney scored the first goal of the game and her fourth of the season. Senior defender Amy Harrison collected the assist.
Six minutes later, redshirt freshman forward Kasey Johnson scored with the help of freshman forward Kimberly Fincher. The goal was Johnson’s sixth of the season. She is currently tied with sophomore midfielder Paige Hanks for most goals this season.
Sophomore goalkeeper Courtnie Northern played all 90 minutes and recorded her second shutout of the year.
“We were able to hold on and came together defensively and did a good job, so it was good to get a shutout and a win,” Warren said.
The Blazers return to West Campus Field on Friday, October 25 to play conference rival Tulsa at 7:30 p.m.
