LUBBOCK, Texas (September 10, 2013) – Lubbock Christian University had their 14-game non-conference win streak snapped Tuesday, as the Lady Chaparrals were shutout 2-0 to former conference rivals Wayland Baptist University at LCU Soccer Field.
LCU had not allowed a goal through two games this season, but the shutout sequence came to an end at 231:36, as Haley Reiser scored the game's first goal and placed the Pioneers up 1-0. The goal came with 20:39 remaining in the opening half, as she found an open cross leading to open look and she cashed in for her first goal of the season. The goal also ended LCU goalkeeper Lauren Story's shutout sequence at 231:36.
WBU wasted no time increasing the lead in the second half, as Annysa Plata placed a bouncing ball in the right corner of the box high into the left side of the goal over Story's reach for a 2-0 advantage. The goal was scored 3:08 into the second half and it was Plata's first of the season.
The Lady Chaps would be unable to get anything past Pioneer goalkeeper Keri Myers. She stopped all six of LCU's shots on goal for her first shutout of the season. Myers garnered the win to improve to 2-1-1 on the season.
WBU out-shot LCU 13-10 and each team had six shots-on-goal. Story suffered her first loss of the season, stopping four of six shots.
LCU falls to 2-1-0 with the loss, while WBU improves to 4-1-0. The win for WBU was their first ever against LCU (LCU leads the all-time series 2-1-1). The two teams had previously been part of the NAIA's Sooner Athletic Conference, but this season LCU is a new member of the NCAA Div. II's Heartland Conference. LCU is off until Sept. 17, as they will play in Canyon, Texas at West Texas A&M for their first road game of the season.
