Liberty Drops 1-0 Match to Delaware

Scoring Summary

35' – DELAWARE – Anna Diffendal

Turning Point

Liberty struggled all day to generate an offensive attack and a goal late in the first half by the Blue Hens proved to be the difference maker. Delaware outshot Liberty 11-5 but the Lady Flames had quality looks on goal as three of the five shots were on target, but Delaware's Kamryn Stablein was solid in goal making three saves on the day.

Key Stats & Notes

  • Delaware outshot Liberty 11-5.
  • Delaware's Riley D'Appolonia and Liberty's Sierra Lam led all players a game-high three shots.
  • Gabrielle Farrell (two shots) and Lam (three shots) were the only players on Liberty's team to record a shot against Delaware.
  • Both teams committed 11 fouls throughout the game.
  • Delaware had four corner kicks on the day while Liberty attempted three.
  • Melody Jayroe came up with three saves.

Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer

"I feel like it is the same story, different day. I thought we played well enough to win, created chances but found a way to lose the game. We are still missing that killer instinct to be able to put teams away." 

Up Next

Liberty will close out its three-game roadtrip on Thursday, Sept. 12, when they travel to face Elon. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Rudd Field.
