Bisons Advance to A-Sun Semis With 5-1 Victory

Sunday, November 07, 2010

The Lipscomb Bisons moved into the semifinals of the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament with a 5-1 win over Campbell in the quarterfinals Saturday afternoon at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex.

The Bisons, the No. 4 seed are 10-8 on the season. Campbell, the No. 5 seed, ended its season with a 6-9-4 record overall. “It was a great team win,” Bisons’ coach Charles Morrow said. “And it was a pretty dominating team win.”

Thursday the Bisons will travel to Johnson City to face top-seeded ETSU at 6 p.m. CT. The Bisons fell 2-1 in overtime to ETSU Oct. 24. This will be the Bisons third trip to the semifinals in their four A-Sun Tournaments.

The last time the Bisons played ETSU in the A-Sun Tournament was last season in the quarterfinals. ETSU won 3-0.

“With any team we have lost to this year there has been a sense of `man, I wish we had another chance at them’, “Morrow said. “I think the guys are looking forward to it. I’m sure we will be ready.”

The Bisons will take Sunday off and then start preparing for ETSU Monday. They will travel to Johnson City either Tuesday or Wednesday night.

“I think with us it is not preparing for the other team as much as it is preparing ourselves,” Morrow said. “I think if you prepare perfectly based on a scouting report then the best that you can do is a draw.

“We need to be aware of what ETSU does and having played them we certainly are. But we need to focus on what we do well and what we need to work on. We will continue that mindset going into this game.”
