Liberty Wins Third Straight, Defeats Stetson

Liberty kept its winning streak alive Thursday night on the road at Stetson as the Lady Flames defeated the Hatters 1-0, making it three straight wins for Liberty. With the victory, Liberty improves to 8-5-2 and 4-1 in the ASUN while Stetson falls to 2-9-2 and 0-3-1 in conference.

 

Scoring Summary

55' – LIBERTY – Gabrielle Farrell (Unassisted)

 

Turning Point

After Liberty struggled in the first half to develop an offensive attack, the Lady Flames made second half adjustments that led to five shots and a goal by Gabrielle Farrell. While the offense did not have its best offensive output, the backline was exceptional allowing just two shots on goal throughout the game.

 

Key Stats & Notes

  • Melody Jayroe recorded her sixth shutout of the season.
  • Jayroe ranks third all-time on Liberty's all-time career shutout list with 18 shutouts.
  • Jayroe and Liberty's backline have not allowed a goal in the last 585 minutes of regulation.
  • Gabrielle Farrell scored her eighth goal of the season and 22nd of her career.
  • Farrell scored her fifth game-winning goal of the season and 16th of her career.
  • Farrell and Kasey Jamieson led Liberty with four shots each.
  • Liberty outshot Stetson 10-9.

 

Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer

"I give credit to Stetson, they played an exceptional game. We had a hard time figuring out how to attack and we just didn't click very well in the first half. I thought the girls responded very well in the second half and credit to our girls. When you get into ASUN play, every game is going to be a battle and the fact that we went on the road and pulled out a win is big time for us."  

 

Up Next

Liberty will return home to close out the week as they host Kennesaw State on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Osborne Stadium and can be seen on ESPN+.
