Offense dries up as women’s soccer skids

After dropping three games in a row, Women’s Soccer team have fallen to 7-5 on the year.

Most recently, the team dropped a non-conference game to Ohio Wesleyan and losing 4-1 in their conference home opener on Sept. 28 against Capital.

Both teams fought hard in what was a very physical game, but Baldwin Wallace was the first to strike in the 40th minute of the game when Sophomore Anna Wenzinger pressured the keeper blocking a kick that led to the goal. Unfortunately, Baldwin Wallace fell out of rhythm in the second half giving up four unanswered goals.

Despite the loss, Senior Emma Bruno still managed to have a good performance saving 11 shots of 15 in roughly 80 minutes of play.

This led to a big night for Sophomore goalkeeper Lyndsey Valentine who made her first appearance of the year finishing out the game and facing no shots on goal.

Despite the tough loss, head coach Jim Wojtkun is nothing but optimistic going into the week.

“The team is committed We’ve had great training this week, and the players feel they match up well,” Wojtkun said.  “We feel that there are no just one or two players that have stood out, but the energy across the team has just been contagious. We’ve had great leadership from our seniors. They have done a great job of keeping the team focused and on task. They really do a great job of being the keepers of the cultural flame. Cofer, Poptic, and Bruno have been special and we will miss them when they are gone.”

The Yellow Jackets will take on their next opponent this Wednesday, Oct. 18 when they face Ohio Northern in George Finnie Stadium.
