The Run Of Play
The Razorbacks opened the match with their seventh goal in the opening 10 minutes this season off the foot of Doyle.
After Goins dispossessed a Tiger player in the 18th-minute, she slipped in a ball to space for Podojil, but the freshman’s shot went wide right. Razorback ‘keeper Katie Lund was able to easily get her body in front of LSU’s first shot on target in the 20th-minute.
Podojil added a late goal to send the Razorbacks to the locker room with the two-goal advantage.
Arkansas netted a pair of set piece goals in the second half to secure the 4-0 victory over LSU. The Razorbacks outshot the Tigers 14-4, allowing just one shot on target all night.
