BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern (4-4) women’s soccer team got their second win on the weekend, shutting out the visiting Hendrix College (6-2), 2-0 this afternoon at BSC Soccer Park.
The Panthers and Warriors played back-and-forth for the entire first half, with neither team able to get many opportunities. The game went into the break tied at 0-0.
The BSC offense woke up in the second half, though, as #Alicia Plotky# got the Panthers on the board in the 51st-minute off a cross from #Jillian Theibert#. The Panther defense continued to hold strong not giving Hendrix any chance to get into a rhythm. #Serena Murphy# gave the Panthers an insurance goal in the 69th-minute to salt the game away for ‘Southern, connecting with Plotky’s feed into the box.
#Amber Hernandez# gave 90 flawless minutes in goal for the Panthers, collecting the shutout from the 6-2 Warriors.
