The Lipscomb Bisons scored a goal late in the second half to walk away with a 2-1 win against Kentucky on Sunday night.

Lipscomb took the lead on a counterattack in the ninth minute against the run of play on Maycie McKay’s goal in the opening frame. The goal was through the heart of the Kentucky defense and finished to the back post to put the Bisons up 1-0 in the early portions of the match.

Kentucky responded in the 39th minute on Miranda Jimenez’s second goal of the season and second in as many weekends. Jimenez took a shot from distance and the rebound carrumed back to her feet and she rifled one past the goalkeeper for the equalizer.

In the first half, UK outshot the Bisons 11-2, and had a 4-1 shots on goal advantage. The corner kick advantage in the opening 45 minutes was also in UK’s favor, 7-3.

After the halftime intermission, it was very cagey for the opening 15 or 20 minutes of the half with Hannah Leonard saving the only clear-cut chance of the opening part of the half. Lipscomb then broke the stalemate with 17 minutes to go in the match on a Jordan Walsh strike.

UK is now finished with its non-conference slate of matches, and will play Florida on Thursday night at the Bell Soccer Complex in Lexington. The match starts at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be shown live on the SEC Network+, and the ESPN app.
