Women's soccer tops Millsaps 2-0 on road
JACKSON, Miss. - The BSC Women's Soccer team traveled to Jackson tonight for a nightcap at Millsaps and came away with the 2-0 victory over the Majors. The win improves the Panthers to 9-6 on the year.
#Lydia Rice# got things started offensively early in the 22nd-minute thanks to a penalty kick. The second goal came just five minutes later when #Sara Menton# broke out of the pack and bested the Majors' keeper with the assist from #Serena Murphy#.
The stats were even on the night, even if the goals were not. BSC out-shot Millsaps 8-7, but the Majors held the edge in on-goal shots at 3-2. #Amber Hernandez# collected the three saves in the shutout.
Coach Walton was pleased with his team's execution on the road. "It is always good to get a win on the road, especially at a place as tough as Millsaps. They are a very tough, hard working team and I could not be prouder of our effort."
BSC will return to BSC Soccer Park on Tuesday for a non-conference match with the Maryville College Scots. Game time is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. back on the Hilltop.
