Commerce, Texas – The Lions were unable to pick up a victory over the first place Lady Buffs as the close out the home schedule for 2012. Leslie Briggs scored in the 15th minute for her 14th of the season. That turned out to be enough as the Buffs survived for the second straight game, 1-0.
After Briggs scored in the 15th minute the Lions had a golden opportunity to even the score when Brionna Minde got a break-a-way shot that hit the cross bar after she beat the keeper and Callie Annett followed with a shot that was going to in but a defender from West Texas made the save to keep the one goal lead. At the end of the half the Lions had three corner kicks but were held without a shot.
The second half started with two more corner kicks for the Lions but once again they were held without a shot. The Lions were able to keep the pressure on with gaining possession in the midfield off goal-kicks from West Texas. Unfortunately, Buffs goalkeeper Yvette Bedoy turned shots from Anitra Wright, Cadie Annett and Minde away.
The Lions close out 2012 with three road games. The first will be against Abilene Christian in Abilene on Friday October 19. Game time is set for 4:00 p.m. in Abilene.
