Graduate forward Kit Loferski bent in a shot from the outside which graduate Madison Alexander put the rebound into the bottom left corner of the net. That goal was the only of the first half, putting the Gators up 1-0 for their first halftime lead since September 26th against Mississippi State.
Loferski would continue to make her presence felt against LSU. In the 55th minute, she centered the ball to junior Alivia Gonzalez. Gonzalez crossed up a defender before getting off a shot and scoring.
The Gators extended their lead seven minutes later. Sophomore Sydney Urban took a corner and placed the ball perfectly in front of the net where freshman Madison Young was set up for the header.
A foul in the box in the 72nd minute would set the Gators up for their first penalty kick attempt of the season. Loferski took the shot and put it in the opposite direction of the diving LSU keeper.
Four goals for the Gators in this contest would be just the second match where they scored three or more goals, the other being Thursday at Georgia. Seven goals in the last two matches ties the gators total for the ten prior matches.
“In the past two games we’ve scored seven goals which is huge for us, especially coming off of the beginning of the season that we’ve had” Loferski stated. “We’ve been on the upclimb. It was a great confidence boost cutting into Thursday.”
Sunday’s 4-0 victory puts the Gators at 10 points, jumping ahead of LSU, Mississippi State, and Texas A&M, pending results from Mississippi State and Texas A&M’s matches later today.
The Gators will play their final match of the regular season this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. against South Carolina.
