BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern men's soccer team defeated the Mississippi University for Women 2-0 on Tuesday night, improving to 7-2-1 on the year.
Junior midfielder Ryan Hepp (Homewood, Ala./Homewood HS) was the man of the match as his two first-half goals were all the Panthers needed to beat the Owls and push their winning streak to two games.
Hepp's first goal, an unassisted goal off a free kick, came in the 18th minute. Then, about seven minutes later in the 25th minute, Hepp struck again, this time scoring off a corner kick delivered by senior Brett Feringa (Covington, La./St. Paul's HS).
A healthy share of possession and the BSC defense, which allowed just one shot-on-goal, took care of the Owls for the remaining 65 minutes of the game.
Hepp's brace on Tuesday night makes him the team's leading scorer with six goals this season.
Birmingham-Southern will travel to Rhodes College for its next match, a Southern Athletic Association matchup against the Lynx. Kickoff for the match is set for 1 p.m.
