The Wildcat offense has found their feet again, winning 3-1 in the match against Dallas Baptist University on Thursday.
Neither team scored in the first half, but ACU came alive in the second half when junior Lyndsey Womack scored a goal just before the 63rd minute. Junior Katie Miller was credited with an assist on the play.
Courtney Wilson stole the show, however, when she scored the next two goals in less than two minutes. She scored the first with an assist from senior Alyson Thomas, and converted a penalty kick for the second goal after she was tripped.
Crissy Lawson was solid in goal for the Wildcats; she did not give up any goals, and she recorded three saves. Lawson has 33 saves this season, putting her in second place in the Lone Star Conference. Melanie Peterson of Angelo State University leads the conference with 36. With 16 minutes left in the game, the win looked secure. Lawson was pulled and replaced by freshman Arielle Moncure. The Lady Patriots were able to score on a loose ball near the net four minutes before the end of regulation, but could not make up the difference in time.
ACU is now 3-3 for the season. The Wildcats play Texas Permian-Basin at 5 p.m. Tuesday at home. The game will be the end of the warm-up for the Wildcats. They open LSC play against Angelo State on Friday.
