Oct. 14, 2003
MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- - Sophomore forward Andy Metcalf scored a pair of goals for the third time this season as Memphis (4-6-1) defeated Lipscomb (2-10-0) 2-1 in non-conference action Tuesday night at Echles Field.
Metcalf put Memphis ahead 1-0 on the game's opening goal in the 26th minute, when freshman Harrison Kiser slipped him a pass for an eight yard blast past the Lipscomb keeper J.D. Murphy.
Metcalf put Memphis up 2-0 at the 27:17 mark of the first period when he played a long ball from freshman defender Alex Kawalit for a 10 yard chip shot over Murphy's head and inside the left post.
The Tigers held the shutout until the 99th minute when the Tiger defense was called for a foul in the penalty box. Bison defender Matt Nichols was able to convert on the Penalty kick with just three seconds for the 2-1 final.
Murphy made six saves in goal for Lipscomb, who was outshot by the Tigers 18-8. Memphis keeper Clark Talley made one save in the win.
"You have to compliment Andy Metcalf again tonight," said head coach Richie Grant. "Andy's goals made a difference in the game. Lipscomb is a much-improved team and they made the game difficult for us tonight."
Memphis will be back in action on Sat., Oct. 18, when they host Drury in a non-conference tilt at Echles Field. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
