ULM woes continue, drop 2 more in conference play

The successful turnaround is over as ULM has dropped two more matches against the University of Louisiana Lafayette and Appalachian State.
In both matches, the Warhawks did not score, falling 0-2 and 0-3, respectively.
ULM returns home for their final two regular season games against Georgia State and Coastal Carolina.
After the two losses, ULM’s point differential over the season is negative 29.
The team has been outscored 43-14.
Only two of the 14 goals have happened in conference play.
The Warhawks have been outscored 27-2 since conference play has started.
A constant throughout the season and the two losses to the Ragin’ Cajuns and Mountaineers has been the Warhawks inability to keep other teams from shooting. Against ULL, the Warhawks were outshot 13-4.
ULM got the first shot of the day as in the fifth minute Madi Garza took a shot saved by Mackenzie Lee.
Warhawks goalkeeper, Angel Hailey had a successful first half keeping the Ragin’ Cajuns off the board.
“We showed a lot of heart in the first half,” head coach Keyton Wheelock said.
The second half was not as successful as in the 53rd minute, ULL got on the board. In the 70th minute, ULL scored again putting the game away.
“We struggled to connect passes in the second half, but still showed fight at the end,” Wheelock said.
While fight was shown against both ULL and Appalachian State, the results were the same.
The first half against the Mountaineers began the same way as the Warhawks could only muster one first half shot to the Mountaineers’ 13.
The Mountaineers got on the board quickly, scoring in the sixth minute. A free kick seven minutes later would put Appalachian State up, 2-0.
“We made some mistakes in the first half that we couldn’t recover from,” Wheelock said.
The second half, though, would be more of the same as the Warhawks offense continued to go cold, allowing for a consistent Mountaineer attack wear down the defense and goalkeeping.
After the two losses, the Warhawks are sitting with zero points in conference play.
