MSC’s Lucy Foye nets four goals in Aggie win over Redlands Community College
September 12, 2019
The Murray State College women’s soccer team faced their first regional opponent of the season, taking on Redlands Community College, September 11. The Aggies headed into the game undefeated after starting the season with five straight wins, including four road wins leading up to Wednesday’s game.
Murray State College quickly took advantage of their speed on offense, getting on the scoreboard 10 minutes into the game with a goal by freshman Lucy Foye, following an assist from sophomore captain Alexes Sanchez. Less than two minutes later, Foye and Sanchez connected again resulting in Foye scoring her second goal of the game.
The Aggies maintained a two-goal lead through most of the first half before sophomore Louisa Boyes scored minutes before halftime to extend the Aggie lead to three. The Redlands Cougars, who were held to just six shots on goal for the game, compared to 16 for MSC, came out of halftime down by at least two goals for the fourth time this season. After a near goal was called back due to an Aggie player being offside, Foye scored back-to-back goals again within minutes of each other, the second on a header following a soaring cross by Sanchez. A late goal by sophomore Brisa Rivera on a penalty kick helped cap the Aggies’ dominant win over the Cougars to net their first regional win of the season.
As a result of the six-to-zero victory, the Aggies have now outscored their opponents 32 goals to two this season, with Foye leading the Aggies in goals with eight, followed by Sanchez with six. Sanchez leads the Aggies in assists with seven, followed by Boyes with six.
The win over Redlands extended the Aggies’ winning streak to six games leading into a September 15 road game versus University of Arkansas- Rich Mountain, a recent addition to NJCAA Div. I Region 2.
