Alabama A&M Women’s Soccer Knocks Off Texas Southern 2-0 In SWAC Action

HUNTSVILLE. Ala. – Alabama A&M (4-7-1, 3-1-0 SWAC) scored a penalty in each half to defeat Texas Southern (2-8-1, 1-2-1 SWAC) 2-0 in an NCAA Division I women’s soccer game on Sunday, October 3.
 
The Bulldogs would get on the scoreboard in the 29th minute as junior forward Jameela Barrett (London, England) would drive the ball to the back right corner of the goal to score a penalty kick for a 1-0 lead. The Tigers second keeper entered the game on the penalty due to the first one being injured.
 
Over the next 17 minutes, neither team would generate any offense and would head to the half with that one goal margin.
 
Both teams started the second half determined to score as they each had three shots on goal but AAMU would be rewarded and stretch the lead to 2-0. With less than five minutes left in the game junior forward Makayla Rushing (Red Oak, Texas) would score a penalty kick by burying the ball to the back right side of the goal to close out a 2-0 decision.
 
Rushing and Barrett both fueled the offense for the Bulldogs with a PK apiece. Medina played all 90 minutes, making five saves to secure the shutout and moves 4-7-1 on the year.
 
Carissa Reese, Ashley Arnes, Mia Ontiveros, Crisely Pavon and Samantha Garcia led the offense for the Tigers, all notching one shot on goal. Alexis Espino anchored the defense, playing 62 minutes in relief with a pair of saves and two goals allowed and moves to 2-5-0.
