Air Force Nips Ladyjacks
Sept. 24, 2006
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Air Force Academy notched a 1-0 win Sunday over the Stephen F. Austin Ladyjack soccer team. The game's lone goal was scored by Air Force's Jessica Yahn off a corner kick three minutes into the second period. The loss moves SFA's record to 4-5-0 with Southland Conference play set to start this week.
Yahn scored when she put her head on a corner kick by Rachael Emory and directed the ball past SFA goalkeeper Jessica Cotton. The Falcons played much of the game in the Ladyjacks' back third and recorded a school-record 14 corner kicks in the contest.
The Ladyjacks will open SLC play on the road Wednesday against Sam Houston State. The game, originally set for a 7 p.m. start, has been moved to 4:30 p.m., because of field lighting problems. SFA will travel to Conway, Ark., for its first meeting with Central Arkansas on Friday, before returning home to host Texas-San Antonio on Sunday.
