Battler Women’s Soccer Overwhelms the Hilltoppers

PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- Alderson Broaddus women’s soccer posted three goals en route to its ninth conference victory Tuesday night, a 3-1 win against West Liberty University at the Multi-Sport Performance Stadium.

Sophomore Olivia Augustine, the reigning West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week, gave the Battlers the lead less than a minute into the second period as she crushed a pass from senior Taylor Bryant past WLU goalkeeper Hannah Judkins.

AB extended its lead behind senior Nicole Lehman’s team-leading ninth goal of the year. Lehman was assisted by sophomore Valerie Barlow at 74:26.

The Hilltoppers cut into the AB advantage as freshman Nancy Isner fired a shot into goal with 13:51 remaining. WLU managed just two shots in the contest.

Senior Amber Kling quickly returned the favor and scored the game’s fourth goal at 76:09. Freshman Harley Morrison provided the assist, her first of the year.

The Battlers welcome Urbana University for Senior Day Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Multi-Sport Performance Stadium.
