The Appalachian State Mountaineers suffered a 2-0 loss to the Liberty Flames in their non-conference finale. A pair of failed clear attempts proved costly for the Mountaineers, as Liberty took advantage of the miscues. The Mountaineers were missing defender Skyler Walk due to a suspension, further stretching their defense. Liberty opened the scoring in the 30th minute and added a second goal in the 61st minute. Appalachian State had their chances, but could not find the back of the net. The Mountaineers will now turn their attention to Sun Belt Conference play as they prepare to face Troy Trojans.
