The Vanderbilt Commodores (0-8) trekked to Missouri (4-3) for a Saturday matchup. That did not stop history from being made in the Power 5 Conference.
A historic game as Vanderbilt, short-handed for “specialist” players, reached out to their women’s soccer team and recruited goalie, Sarah Fuller. Despite the lopsided 41-0 Vanderbilt defeat, the story of the game is Fuller.
She kicked off to start the second half. Using a holder, her kick went 30 yards. Fuller had a comment on helmet, “Play like a Girl.” Despite being the first female to play in a Power 5 game, she is not the first to participate in a Collegiate contest.
Katie Hnaida nailed two extra points for the University of New Mexico in 2003 and April Goss hit one extra point for Kent State in 2015. Both institutions were members of the FBS or, Football Sub Division.
With history being made in the Power 5 Conference, all of us at Edge of Philly want to congratulate Ms. Fuller as well as Ms. Hnida and Ms. Goss on their groundbreaking performances!
