Lady Saints hold off Warriors

CLINTON – Wrapping up a three-game homestand on Sunday afternoon, the Ashford University women’s soccer team earned a win that could be summed up with the word “character.”

After grabbing a two-goal lead in the first half, the Saints held off a comeback rally from the Warriors of Indiana Tech for a 3-2 win.

Hollie Babut and Ali Tamburro netted first half goals, and freshman Luciane Wentz potted the game winner with just over five minutes to play for the No. 20-ranked Saints (6-2).

“It was about character more than style today,” coach Mick Regan said. “We could have folded after giving up a two-goal lead in the second half, but our girls hung in there and adjusted defensively. That’s a sign that we can play when facing some adversity and it was a good sign from our young group.”

With time ticking down in the first half, Babut opened the scoring for Ashford. The Oshawa, Ontario-native came streaking down the left side and put a crossing feed from senior Jordan Pisesky past Warriors’ keeper Jordan Roell for her fourth goal of the season.

Three minutes later, Courtney Babut was hauled down inside the box, allowing Tamburro to make it 2-0 when she beat Roell on a penalty kick in the 41st minute for her fourth tally of the year.

The Warriors answered early in the second half, with Alex Field scoring in the 58th and 61st minutes to even the score.

The two teams exchanged chances until the 85th minute, when senior Sarah Schreck delivered a perfect corner kick to Wentz, who wasted no time beating Roell for her first career goal. The assist gives Schreck a team-high 10 points on the year.

Shots were 21-15 in favor of the Warriors. Indiana Tech’s Tori Singstock led all players with eight shots. Schreck and Tamburro each had four shots to lead AU.
