ULM soars into SBC play

Few things are harder to stop than ULM’s offense. The Warhawks have outscored their opponents 24-2 this season. The offense and defense have been firing on all cylinders setting the team up to be a dangerous opponent moving into Sun Belt Conference play.

With the 7-0 win last Wednesday against Mississippi Valley State, the Warhawks have pushed their record to 6-0. 

After breaking the school record for best start to a season last Sunday after beating Southern, each new win garners a new school record. 

ULM put out a dominant performance against the Devilettes. Beating MVSU 61 shots to 1, the Hawks put up a new single game record for most shots on goal with 31. 

ULM started the offensive onslaught early with junior Courtney Marten scoring her sixth goal of the season off an assist from senior Theoni Zerva in the fourth minute.

This goal was followed quickly when freshman Inge Konst scored a quick goal off an assist from junior Lucia Lobato in the 16th minute. 

The third goal for the Warhawks came when Zerva converted a penalty kick in the 22nd minute. 

Marten continued her hot streak scoring her second goal of the game off an assist from junior Efi Brame in the 42nd minute. 

In the second half, ULM was able to bring out some starters and let younger players get some game experience. 

This allowed freshman Peyton Pipes and sophomore Louise Atkinson to score their first career goals in the 76th and 77th minute respectively. 

Although the Warhawks have put on an impressive showing in their first six games, head coach Sean Fraser says there are still places for the team to improve. 

“I was pleased with the amount of shot creation in the team, but our decision making on when to shoot, pass or dribble needs a little work,” Fraiser said.

ULM travels to Georgia State to continue their Sun Belt Conference play on Thursday.
