Hatters top Hornets for second straight win

 
DeLand, Fla. -- Stetson University's women's soccer team won its second straight match at home Sunday afternoon as the Hatters topped the Alabama State Hornets 2-1. 
 
In their second game in a row, the Hatters (2-2) created opportunities for its offense right from the start. Stetson outshout Alabama State 10-0 in the first half but could not find the back of the Hornets net. 
 
After playing to a scoreless tie in the first 45 minutes, the Hatters offense did not waste time getting on the board in the second half. In the 46th minute, freshman Lea Alexander fed a pass to Jackie Fiacco who headed it into the bottom right corner of the Hornets net to put the Hatters up 1-0. 
 
Three minutes after Fiacco scored, the graduate student found Alexander in the ASU box who promptly put it past the Hornets keeper to give the Hatters a 2-0 advantage. In the 62nd minute, the Hornets (0-4) scored on a penalty shot from McKenna Wiscombe, but that was all the offense the Hatters defense allowed on the afternoon. 
 
"It's about momentum and we really created some momentum," said head coach Chris Bergmann. "Great team energy and effort and they're really excited right now," continued Bergmann. "It's all about going into next week." 

Stetson out shot ASU 27-2 on the afternoon as sophomore Abigail Batchelor had six shots with four on goal. Senior Jordan Ross and freshman Kyleigh Thelen each had five shots for the Hatters.

Next week, the Stetson University women's soccer team travels to Charleston, S.C. for two road matches. The Hatters face Charleston Southern University on Thursday, Sept. 2 and then on Sunday, Sept. 5, Stetson faces The Citadel. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. for both matches.
