Lady Tops Advance

Sun Belt Soccer Championship Logo

Yesterday, the Sun Belt got their women’s soccer tournament underway in San Marcos, Texas, where all 8 teams had one goal in common – to become a first time SBC soccer champion.

When we woke up this morning, only 4 remained. And, luckily for us, the #1 seed WKU Lady Toppers are one of them. But it didn’t come easy by any means.

Entering the second half, WKU found themselves down by a goal, and it appeared that things just wouldn’t go WKU’s way after a goal was scored, but later called back due to an offsides. And then things turned around.

In the 58th minute, all-SBC first teamer Chrissy Tchula found the back of the net for the equalizer, and in the 66th minute, all-SBC second teamer Iris Dunn put home the go-ahead, and eventual game winner, for WKU as the Lady Tops beat the UALR Trojans 2-1 for WKU’s fourth-straight first round victory.

Up next for WKU? Host Texas State, following the Bobcats 2-1 OT win over the other SBC Trojans, Troy. WKU beat the  Bobcats in San Marcos already this season, a 1-nil victory in double overtime.

The other matchup will put the 2nd seeded South Alabama Jaguars against the 6th seeded Arkansas St. Red Wolves. The SBC final will pit the winners of both matches on Sunday.

Stand up and cheers.
