The Western Kentucky soccer team lost 2-1 at Louisiana Tech on Sunday.

Western (2-5-2, 0-2 Conference USA) put six of its 10 shots on goal.

Senior Nicole Roseland netted the lone goal for the Lady Toppers, her second of the year while Sarah Gorham also led the Lady Toppers with three shots in the match.

The win marks the second consecutive victory and the eighth in their last 10 matches for the Lady Techsters and moved them to 9-3 on the season and 2-1 in CUSA play.

Louisiana Tech scored the match’s opening goal in the 61st minute as Jaelyn Peeples scored from 30 yards out for her second goal of the season.

After just over 20 minutes of the Lady Techsters holding a 1-0 lead, Roseland scored her second of the season on an unassisted shot from inside the 18-yard box that rattled off the post and rolled past the keeper.

Louisiana Tech would break the tie just four minutes later as Amber Posthauer would score with just two minutes remaining in the contest.

The Lady Toppers will be off until Sept. 28 when the team travels to Charlotte.
