Liberty pulled off the ASUN sweep this weekend as they defeated North Alabama, 3-0, for its second shutout win this week. The Lady Flames improve to 7-5-2 and 3-1 in the ASUN while North Alabama drops to 4-8 and 0-3 in conference.
18' – LIBERTY – Kailey Neef (Assist by Kasey Jamieson)
68' – LIBERTY – Nicole Crutchfield (Unassisted)
84' – LIBERTY – Cora Duininck (Assist by Kailey Neef)
After Kailey Neef scored the first goal for Liberty in the first half, Liberty was able to set the tone from then on as they held possession for 57 percent of the game. While Liberty's backline and goalkeeper Melody Jayroe was holding down the fort limiting the ASUN leading goal scorer, Shelby Wall, to just one shot on goal, Liberty's offense was exceptional as nine different players attempted a shot for the Lady Flames, scoring a trio of goals.
Key Stats & Notes
Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer
"The game came in a little bit of waves. I thought we started pretty well and created some chances and then lost a little bit of the momentum and gained it back as the (first) half wore on. It was great to get that goal before the first half ended and that set the tone for us. We created a lot of chances today and credit to their keeper for making some big saves but it was great to see our girls come off a big win against Lipscomb, playing Friday night while North Alabama didn't play Friday and they were fresh so to get a 3-0 shutout is awesome."
Liberty will have two games next week with one on the road and one at home. The Lady Flames will start on the road as they travel to face Stetson on Thursday, Oct. 10. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the Athletic Training Center.
