WKU soccer again triumphs late to beat Arkansas State

Herald Staff

Not unlike Friday’s come-from-behind win over Arkansas Little-Rock, the WKU soccer teams’s defeat of Arkansas State came on Sunday after late-game heroics.

Each of WKU’s (5-4-2, 3-1 Sun Belt) goals in its 2-0 shutout of the Red Wolves (4-7-1, 0-4) came in the last 12 minutes of the contest.

Redshirt junior forward Mallory Outerbridge registered the Lady Toppers’ first shot on goal in the 30th minute and followed that by scoring WKU’s second goal of the match with eight minutes to play.

Assisting on Outerbridge’s fourth goal of the season was freshman midfielder Torrie Lange. 

The second goal was preceded by sophomore midfielder Sydney Sisler’s score five minutes earlier.

Junior midfielder was credited with the assist.

Head Coach Jason Neidell praised Sisler after the game.

“We had so many players contribute to the effort today, but in particular it was good to see Sydney Sisler really involved in our attack, being involved in three of our four goals on the weekend,” Neidell said.

Each team posted 11 shots during the match, and junior goalkeeper Libby Stout recorded three saves in her 25th career shutout.
