Women’s Soccer drops two games, falls four points out of fourth place
The Gators Women's Soccer team started the week on Wednesday afternoon with a 4-0 loss to the first place Everett Trojans.
Everett started the scoring early with a 13th minute goal from Lauren Allison, assisted by Kelsie Neill. Just ten minutes later the Trojans found the back of the net again with a goal by CJ Shaver, assisted by Lauren Allison. Just before half, the Trojans made the deficit even larger for the Gators with CJ Shaver's second goal of the match, assisted by Krista King. The Gators went into halftime trailing 3-0.
The Gators stepped up their defense in the second half but it wasn't enough, as Denae Weigelt scored in the 85th minute and the Trojans went on to win 4-0 and increase their first-place lead.
On Saturday, the Gators traveled north to Whatcom Community College. The Gators trailed the Orcas by just one point going into the match, and had high hopes of taking over fourth place.
The Orcas scored one goal in each half: once in the 11th minute and once in the 83rd. This was enough as goalkeeper Megan O'Keefe recorded the shutout and gave Whatcom a 2-0 victory.
With this loss, the Gators sit at 4-8-0 and drop back to 4 points out of fourth place. They will host second place Shoreline on Wednesday at 2 p.m. before traveling to Skagit Valley on Saturday, Oct. 18.
