Clarksville, Ark.-Kristyn Shinn and Lori Langman each scored second half goals to propel the Lady Eagles to a 2-0 win over Schreiner University in American Southwest Conference play Saturday.
Schreiner (0-9-2, 0-7-2) had the better showing in the first half, holding a 12-7 shots advantage over Ozarks (4-11-0, 3-6-0). The Lady Eagles’ best scoring opportunity came when Shinn’s shot in the 40th minute went wide. Langman held the Mountaineers scoreless in the first half by recording six saves.
Ozarks would battle back in the second half and attack the Schreiner defense relentlessly. Emalee Pearson nearly put Ozarks on the scoreboard in the 58th minute, but her header sailed too high. On the attack in the 59th minute, Rebecca Groff found Shinn sprinting towards the box. Shinn took a few touches and easily put it past the goalkeeper to give Ozarks a 1-0 lead. Ozarks would add to the lead when Langman converted a penalty kick in the 61st minute. Langman later prevailed on the defensive end as well, knocking Rebecca Chiaro’s shot over the crossbar in the 78th minute.
Shinn finished with six shots, three of which were on goal.
It was Langman’s second shutout of the season.
Ozarks will travel to Marshall, Texas, to face East Texas Baptist University October 23 and then to Longview, Texas, to face LeTourneau University October 24.
