Early Goal Not Enough as LSUA’s WSOC Season Ends
Jr. F Karen Jacobs broke another LSUA single season record, but her early goal didn’t hold up as the LSUA women’s soccer team saw its 2019 season come to a close in a 2-1 loss to the Southwest Mustangs in the semifinals of the 2019 Red River Athletic Conference Soccer Championship Tournament presented by Farmers Bank & Trust at Eagle Field on the campus of Texas A&M-Texarkana.
How It Happened:
The Generals struck early as Jordyn DeJongh connected with Karen Jacobs for the record goal to put LSUA up 1-0 in just the fourth minute, a goal that made Jacobs the LSUA women’s soccer single season goal scoring queen. But the Mustangs found the equalizer in the 27th minute, and then a USW player beat the LSUA offsides trap and got one on one with the goalkeeper, scoring the match’s deciding goal in the 44th minute, with less than 90 seconds remaining before halftime.
