SFA Blacks Out Central Arkansas, 1-0
Oct. 5, 2012
CONWAY, Ark. - Becky Johnson scored the game-winning goal in the 67th minute on a penalty kick to help the Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks defeat UCA in a 76-minute shortened game Friday evening at Bill Stephens Field.
Friday's match was twice delayed due to lightening (30 minutes each) and the final 14 minutes were called off due to darkness.
"We feel very fortunate to come out of here with a victory," SFA head coach Tony Amato said. "The girls were able to overcome extreme weather conditions and get the result we needed."
SFA (10-3-0, 3-0-0) outshot UCA, 16-6 and 5-4 shots on goal. The Match was played in severe rain and wind and the Ladyjacks played against the wind for nearly the entire match. Johnson scored the game-winner in the 67th minute following a foul and planted the shot in the back corner past UCA goalkeeper Kelsey Gochnauer.
The SFA defense pitched their 10th shutout of the year and goalkeeper Lacey Lee stopped ran her personal mark to 8-2-0.
The Ladyjacks will continue their road trip Sunday at Northwestern State at 2 p.m.
