The WTAMU Women’s Soccer team concluded their regular season on Oct. 26, defeating the ENMU Zias in Portales, New Mexico, 1-0. An early score by senior striker Lindsay McHorse and a relentless offensive attack propelled the Lady Buffs to victory.
“It’s always hard going to Eastern and winning because their field is thick and changes the game,” senior striker Leslie Briggs said. “I was really proud of the team this weekend; we fought really hard and got a goal in the first three minutes. We had some scary, rough moments but we held on strong. With this win and an Incarnate Word loss, we are the conference champs and get first seeding. We are all pretty excited to be hosting the tournament and can’t wait to get the tournament started.” Briggs recorded the lone assist during the game.
With the win, the Lady Buffs finish the regular season with an impressive 10-4 LSC record and 11-6-1 overall in their 2012 campaign while Eastern New Mexico concludes with a 4-10 LSC tally with a 5-13 overall record.
As WT celebrated its win over ENMU, it proved sweeter when Angelo State scored an upset of Incarnate Word in San Antonio. This enables the Lady Buffs to capture their fifth Lone Star Conference regular season championship and host the
LSC Championship tournament at The Pitch this weekend.
The Lady Buffs earned themselves a first round bye in the tournament and will return to defend The Pitch on Friday at 7:30 p.m. to face the winner of the Midwestern State vs. Abilene Christian game that will take place on Thursday at 2:30 p.m.
