USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - A pair of goals by Kailey Anders pushed Arkansas past Air Force, 2-1, Friday night at the Cadet Soccer Stadium. The loss drops the Falcons to 4-4 on the season, while the Razorbacks improved to 2-4.
Anders scored the game-winning goal in the 72nd minute, stopping a Falcon rally and pushing Arkansas to the win. Anders scored off a pass from Allie Chandler on a one-timer from the middle of the box.
It was a tough loss for Air Force, which battled back to tie the match and just missed on several strong scoring chances late in the game.
Trailing 1-0, the Falcons tied the match up in the 50th minute on a goal by Cassie Wilson. Wilson scored her first-career goal on a free kick from 50 yards out near the midfield line.
Arkansas led early on, as Anders scored her first goal 16 minutes in. Anders scored from two yards out, following her own shot that bounced past Falcon goalkeeper Kelly Stambaugh's initial stop.
