Lion Soccer Field – Commerce, Texas
Lions host second place Texas Woman's on Wednesday to try to pull within two of conference lead.
Recapping last week's action
A&M-Commerce split a pair of games with Midwestern and Abilene Christian. After getting rained out on Friday, the Lions and the Mustangs played on a rain soaked field on Saturday. The Lions suffered a 1-0 defeat in double overtime. Mother Nature played a role in the second game of the weekend with the game against Abilene Christian was pushed to Monday and the sun shined down on the Lions with the Lions prevailing 1-0 on a Stephanie Neely goal to beat the Wildcats.
PREVIEWING THE PIONEERS
The Pioneers are currently second place in the conference with a 4-1-1 record on LSC play. Texas Woman's are undefeated in their last four with a 3-0-1 record. This is surprise because TWU was picked to finish last in the conference in the preseason poll. The Pioneers are lead by Brittany Martin (#21) with 19 points on the season, second place in the conference. Martin also leads the team in shots and shots on goal. Also on offense for Texas Woman's is Katy Black (#8), leads the team in assists with five; Taylor Maxson (#25) has two goals and two assists and Emily Davila (#11) with two goals and one assists. Given all of the offense Texas Woman's possess this could be a low scoring game with A&M-Commerce and Texas Woman's ranking second and third in goals allowed per game.
