"This was a great win, and an important one for our program," said head coach Scott Calabrese. "The three points we got today put us in a great position going forward to qualify for the A-Sun tournament. The team's performance was exceptional as it was a total team effort. This was an inspired effort from a team that knew we had to win today. It's exciting to see that when we are in a position with our backs against the wall and we have to win a game that we have the character and ability to perform well.
The Bucs (4-8-3, 3-4-1 A-Sun) outshot the Bisons (5-9-3, 2-4-2 A-Sun) 11-10 in the match and had five shots on goal to one for Lipscomb. The Bisons had a 3-1 advantage in corners, but ETSU played stellar defense as senior Scott Rosman (Kenner, La.) was forced to only make one save late in the match.
"It was clear that our guys really wanted to win, and that they truly want the season to continue," Calabrese said. "In the end I am extremely proud of them. I think we have got a very intelligent and determined back four. I thought we did a great job of limiting their attacking options. We understood them as a team, and because of that we knew what they were looking to do so we were able to limit their chances."
