An early goal for the Lady Flames, courtesy of Gabrielle Farrell, gave Liberty's backline the chance to settle into the game, dictating the pace of play. Liberty controlled possession throughout the game as they outshot the Highlanders 13-8. Liberty's backline was exceptional allowing just three shots on goal. As she has done all season, Farrell was clutch with her seventh game-winning goal this season.
Key Stats & Notes
Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer
"I thought we were really good the first 20 minutes of the game. Credit to NJIT for scrapping their way back into it and with the rain and the wind it just became a gritty match so I am proud of our girls holding on and pulling out the win."
Liberty will await the results of Sunday's contests to determine what seed Liberty will be in the ASUN Championship. The tournament will begin on Friday, Nov. 1, as the top two seeds in the conference will host the quarterfinals and semifinals matchups.
