The women’s soccer team kept their season rolling with a 4-4 record as they went 1-2 against Missouri-Kansas City, North Dakota State and South Dakota State.

The Panthers started off last weekend with a road trip to Kansas City as they took on the UMKC Roos.  The Panther women          were unable to find the back of the net, getting just three shots on goal in a 4-0 loss.

“I think that this game, in the long run, is going to make us better,” head coach Bruce Erickson said.

The Panthers bounced back last Sunday at home against North Dakota State, shutting out the Bison, 3-0.

With 15 shots, 10 of which were on goal, the purple and gold scored right off the bat in the 13th minute. Goals by Sydney Hayden, Olivia Stearns and Jordyn Rolli led the Panthers to their shutout win.  Goalie Anna Kaiser saved the only two shots on goal by NDSU throughout the entire game.

“The only disappointment was not being as efficient in front of the goal as we probably should have been,” Erickson said.  Scoring three was great, but that could have gotten to six, seven or eight.”

Following their bounce back win, the Panther women couldn’t keep their momentum going, taking a tough 2-0 loss to South Dakota State on Friday.  The Panthers couldn’t get their offensive attack going with a total of 11 shots, and only five on goal.

Up next, the Panthers will travel to Macomb, Ill., to take on the Western Illinois Leathernecks on Monday, Sept. 23.
