Camels look for first conference win on quick turnaround
The Camels will be playing on one day of rest as their Big South opener at UNC Asheville was pushed from Wednesday to Thursday due to rain. CU fell to the Bulldogs 1-0, their third straight loss on the road. Sophomore keeper Samantha Lawson earned her first career start in the net, grabbing a career-high five saves. Junior Kellsey Costello-Mays led the Camel offense with a career-high six shots, four on goal.
Scouting the Flames (6-3-0, 1-0-0 BSC)
Liberty opened the Big South schedule with a 1-0 win over Charleston Southern Wednesday on a Brittany Aanderud goal. The Flames are 3-1 at home this season, as all three wins were shutouts for keeper Holly Van Noord.
