Women’s Soccer kicked off the Big South Conference Tournament in spectacular fashion by beating High Point 2-0 Saturday night at Cupp Stadium.

The Highlander’s were on fire, shooting the ball a drastic 29 times compared to High Point’s 11. Defending Big South Attacker of the Year Jasmine Casarez and Jane Everette scored the two goals for Radford. Casarez shot the ball 10 times Saturday night, almost equaling that of High Point. Casarez’s goal marked the 11th time she has found the back of the net this season.

The Highlanders tallied most of their shots in the first half. Shooting 17 total compared to High Point’s paltry two. The Highlander defense blanketed a High Point attack and posted their eighth shutout of the season and their fourth in-a-row.

High Point’s season has now come crashing to an end in disappointment for the defending conference champions.

The ultra-attacking offense of the Highlanders proved they have what it takes to be successful in this year’s Big South Tournament. The Highlanders will look to keep firing as they travel to face Campbell this coming up week.

Campbell has proven to be the Achilles-Heel of the tournament as they have knocked out the Highlanders the past two years. We will see what happens.
