Liberia’s reigning women’s division MVP, Angeline Kieh, is off to a great start with the “Lady Tigers” of the Campbellsville University after recording her second assist on Friday, September 3, at the Finley Stadium in Kentucky.

Angeline’s second assist came in her team’s first home match of the season when they lost 2-1 to Aquinas. According to the Lady Tigers’ match report; they went down 2-0 in the first half as they failed to get a curtain-raiser. 

The Lady Tigers became more aggressive in the second half and “were clear from the onset that they would be in attack mode. Campbellsville would take 15 shots compared to the first half’s five and would tally 14 shots on goal for the game.”

Angeline, according to the match report, led the charge with eight shots on goal for the game. In the 53rd minute, she pulled Saints keeper Tairyn Webb out of the net, dribbled to the baseline, and connected with freshman forward Lina Berrah for the first goal of Berrah’s Campbellsville Women’s Soccer career.

The Lady Tigers pushed all body forward to get an equalizer, but could not, as the match ended 2-1, recording their first home defeat.

Prior to Friday’s match, Angeline, a sophomore, announced herself as one of the University’s Women team's new signees when she scored her first goal in their 3-2 win against Roosevelt University. Angeline netted the goal in the 69th minute through an assist from teammate Allison Sekura to level the score at 2-2. This was followed by Rebecca Lilley’s late goal in the 81st minute that secured all three points for the Lady Tigers.
