The women’s soccer team wrapped up their final road game with a tough loss against Loyola University with a final score of 3-2. Throughout the season, the Panthers have had no problem against teams on the road, but this contest proved to be different.

Goalkeeper Jami Reichenberger struggled at the beginning of game, allowing two goals in the first 15 minutes. This is a new sight for the Panthers, as Reichenberger had earned a long streak of shutouts earlier in the season.

The Ramblers came out to play early against the Panthers with a score by Jenna Szczesny in the eighth minute. This goal would be shortly followed by another in the 11th minute by Katie Grall.

Sophomore Sydney Hayden would narrow the deficit with a goal of her own in the 13th minute. She scored her fourth goal of the season with an assist from Sarah Brandt.

This brings Brandt’s assists to seven for the season, but the Panther’s defense seemed to be absent on Saturday, allowing 16 shot attempts and only two saves. The Ramblers took a 3-1 lead in the 48th minute after a goal by Taylor Lambouris.

With a two goal lead, the Ramblers tried to hold off the Panthers, but Jenny Wick was able to score in the 52nd minute. Wick would add to her season total of three goals. The Panthers cut into the lead making it a 3-2 game. At the end of regulation, the Ramblers won  3-2.

The Panthers capped off a great season at home versus Indiana State on Thursday evening.  Brynell Yount led the Panthers to a 2-0 win over the Sycamores, but both teams would not score in the first half.

The Panthers came out the second half ready to play. Yount would put the Panthers on the board first in the 62nd minute. Not long after her first goal, she would come back and score two minutes later. Yount scored her eighth and ninth goals of the season in this game. Yount’s final goal of this game came in the 64th minute with an assist by Wick.

The Panthers shut out the Sycamores 2-0, UNI’s ninth shutout this season. In the end, the UNI women’s soccer team finished the season 12-4-1.
