Appalachian State Women’s Soccer Lose at James Madison

App State conceded a goal four minutes into play on Friday, and despite a flurry of chances in the closing minutes, the Mountaineers fell, 1-0, to JMU at Sentara Park.

Senior goalkeeper Kerry Eagleston made six saves, with the lone blemish on her line being the early-game finish from Lidia Nduka, who finished on a JMU (7-2-3, 3-0-1) counter-attack.

Stephanie Barbosa and Lela Stark each tallied a shot on goal for App State (3-5-4, 2-2-0), which upped their pressure offensively in the second half. Junior Breckyn Monteith had, perhaps, the team’s best scoring opportunity, blasting a shot from the top of the 18-yard box, but it ricocheted off a JMU defender.

Defenders Shannon Studer, Katie Schumacher, and Skyler Walk played all 90 minutes in the contest for the Mountaineers.

App State returns home Oct. 6 as they host the Georgia State Panthers at 6 p.m. The match is presented by Chick-fil-A, and will be broadcast on ESPN+.
