Herald Staff

The WKU women’s soccer team now has the second-best record in the Sun Belt Conference thanks to a 2-1 win at Arkansas-Little Rock on Friday night.

A goal by junior midfielder Kelsey Meyer inside of ten minutes to play broke a 1-1 tie in a game that WKU (4-4-2, 2-1 Sun Belt) had previously trailed 1-0 until the 80th minute.

The match at UALR (4-8, 0-3 Sun Belt) was the first of a four-game road trip.

After saving three shots in a scoreless first half, junior goalkeeper Libby Stout let a shot by Adrianna Queen slide past her in the opening eight minutes of play in the second half.

Three shots on goal in the next 24 minutes led up to a score by sophomore forward Laura Ray, her first of the season.

Sophomore midfielder Sydney Sisler was credited with the assist.

Meyer’s go-ahead goal came just two minutes after Ray’s game-tying shot.

WKU outshot UALR 9-6, posting six shots on goal, and had five corner kick opportunities. Meyer’s goal was on the fourth corner kick of the night.

The Lady Toppers travel to Jonesboro, Ark., to face Arkansas State on Sunday.
