PIKEVILLE – Asbury University scored four second-half goals to put away the University of Pikeville women’s soccer team 5-0 on Tuesday afternoon at the Bob Amos Complex.
Teryn Wright got the scoring started in the eighth minute before the Bears (0-6) put on enough defensive pressure to go into the halftime break down just 1-0.
But the Eagles (4-2) got things rolling in the final 45 minutes, putting together an 11-6 advantage in shots that led to goals in the 49th, 63rd, 75th and 81st minutes. Five different players tallied the goals for Asbury, starting with Wright and ending with Cait Baker with 10 minutes left to play.
Asbury finished up with a 19-6 shot advantage for the game, including a 12-3 lead in shots on goal. It also put together a 5-0 lead in corner kicks and ended up with eight fouls to UPIKE’s five.
Brooke Perkins picked up the clean sheet in goal for the Eagles, snagging three saves in a full 90 minutes, while UPIKE’s Caitlyn Hunt finished with seven saves and all five goals allowed.
All six of the Bears’ shots came from players off the bench, including three each from Macarena Acuna and Kaitlyn Abdon. Wright paced Asbury with five shots, putting two on target.
Pikeville will be back on the field at 7 p.m. on Friday at Cincinnati-Clermont in Batavia, Ohio.
