Women’s Soccer Falls to Lipscomb, Clinches No. 2 Seed in ASUN Championship

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Central Arkansas women’s soccer team fell in its regular season finale, losing to Lipscomb by way of an 0-3 final. UCA struggled to generate any offense and drops to 9-8 on the season. With the result, the Bears finish the regular season in the No. 2 Seed in the ASUN West.
 
“Not the way we wanted to finish the regular season, but ASUN West co-champions in Year One of joining the league isn’t too bad,” Head coach Jeremy Bishop said of the loss. “Now it’s time to regroup and get ready for the tournament.”
 
UCA found itself in a tight spot early, as the Bison offense came out with a heightened intensity, firing off several shots in the opening minutes. While the Bears were able to hold them off for a while, but eventually ceded the first goal of the match in the 19th minute.
 
Though UCA was able to stop the bleeding, Lipscomb continued to control possession for most of the half. The Bison eventually found another goal before the half, scoring in the 42nd minute and taking a 2-0 lead into the halftime break.
 
The Bears started to get a few good looks in the second half, but ultimately weren’t able to find a goal and close the gap.
 
Looking ahead to the ASUN Championship, the Bears locked up the No. 2 Seed and will travel to Fort Meyers, Fla., to face Kennesaw State on October 29. Earlier this season, UCA lost to the Owls 3-4 in overtime.
