Lady Buffs Top Midwestern State with a 2-1 win

The Lady Buffs played with effort in the second half and won against the MSU Mustangs

After a slow start, the Lady Buffs found a way to rebound and came away with a much deserved 2-1 win against a very game Midwestern State team. It was just what the Lady Buffs needed after a tough 2-0 loss to eighth-ranked Angelo State on October 10th.
The Lady Buffs came into the game at 5-7 while being 1-3 in conference play. The win bumps them up to 6-7 and 2-3 in conference play. While the record does not show it, these Lady Buffs play hard, and have proven, as they did in their 2013 campaign, that when it gets down to crunch time, they show up.
The youth of the team is apparent in the starting lineup for the Lady Buffs, with one senior, two juniors, four sophomores and three freshmen. Though it is a tough team, they play hard and with effort. Even when they play with little competition at first, as they did against MSU, they finish strong.
“We didn’t compete very hard in the first half and somehow came out tied,” Chad Webb, Lady Buffs Head Coach, said after a first half where it looked as if the Lady Buffs were somewhat lackadaisical.
After the first half though, things began to click for the Lady Buffs who didn’t allow a score the rest of the game and came away with their own in the 88th minute.
“We competed more in the second half, and came away with a goal out of pure effort,” said Webb.
The two scores for the Lady Buffs came from two different sources, one being that of Jessie Thomas, who had her third of the year, and the other coming from Lucy Chalgren, who had her first goal of the season, and the first of her young career.
“That goal by Lucy was pure effort. It was crazy in that goal, and she got her head on it for her first career goal,” Webb said.
The Lady Buffs play again on Oct. 17 against a game Eastern New Mexico (6-5, 3-2 LSC) team in Portales, NM.
