ECU soccer team knocks off Harding

Ada —      The East Central University soccer team claimed a 3-2 win over Harding in Great American Conference action Friday at Lady Tiger Field.

     The Lady Tigers (2-8, 2-1 GAC) saw goals from three different players and assists from two more. Senior Ashley Bradford earned her second goal of the season and the game-winning goal. Redshirt freshman Taylor Lowe earned the win in goal, stopping eight shots.

     The Bisons (2-7, 1-3 GAC) earned the first goal of the match at 9:19 in the first half.

     Junior Kourtney Holleman tallied ECU’s first goal of the match at 24:43. Holleman sent in a shot from the top of the box off a corner kick by junior Taylor Graves.

     The match remained knotted at one after the end of the first half. At 56:51 in the second half, the Lady Tigers took their first lead on a goal from junior Milan Galloway. Galloway ran down the left side and sent in a shot off the top of Harding’s goalkeepers hands.

     The Bisons tied the game up just over 11 minutes later. ECU kept fighting and took the final lead of the match at 75:53.

     Bradford earned her second goal of the season on a quick shot on the right side of the goalie box after she received a cross from junior Katie Glutz.

     Harding kept the pressure up the rest of the match with seven shots, including four on goal. However, Lowe stopped all four shots she saw, and the Lady Tigers earned the 3-2 win.

     ECU wrapped up the regularly scheduled home season today when the Lady Tigers host league-leading Ouachita Baptist at 1 p.m. at Lady Tiger Field. The match is the annual Senior Day affair, where the Lady Tigers will honor seniors Ashley Bradford, Stephanie Flores, Susana Galvez and Katelynn Harper before the start of the match.
