SOC: Lady Jaguars defeated at home
Southern University Lady Jaguars was not able to hold Texas Southern University Lady Tigers surge of momentum in the second half dropping their first conference match of the season 2-0.
The Lady Jaguars controlled the match out the gate, keeping the Lady Tigers flustered and unable to generate any offensive opportunities. SU outshot Texas Southern 3-2 and Southern missed on a chance to score on a free kick before intermission when the referee halted the half which took the steam out the Lady Jaguars.
While Southern opened the second half a bit sluggish, Texas Southern pounced quickly, capitalizing on a header by Briana Norwood off of a corner kick to take a 1-0 lead eleven minutes into the second half. The Lady Tigers' second goal came off an identical shot, a header by Alisa Holloway off of a corner kick volley at the 68' minute.
Southern University recorded five shots with two on goal. Texas Southern recorded a total of nine shots in the second half connecting on two.
The Lady Jaguars will have a quick turnaround when they face Prairie View A&M University Sunday, September 24 at 1 p.m. at Jaguar Park. Last season, Southern pulled the upset defeating the Lady Panthers 1-0 in the final minutes to give PVAMU their first loss in their new home stadium on October 21, 2016.
