  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Falcons battle rival Toledo for MAC title

The BGSU women’s soccer team has a very short road trip this weekend, but a very important road match. The outcome of today’s match at Toledo will determine if the squad will hold onto their position on top of the Mid-American Conference standings.

The Falcons enter this weekend with a record of 8-2-0 in the MAC, 12-6-0 overall, including their current streak of seven straight wins.

Dealing with the pressure will be one of the biggest obstacles the squad will face.

“Everyone knows if we win, we win the MAC,” BG coach Andy Richards said. “Add to that playing a rival. We have to remain focused and composed.”

The Falcons have had no problem with composure as of late. The team is led offensively by Samantha Meister’s six goals on the season. Britt Anderson and Corbie Yee have five tallies each. Julie Trundle has also been extremely dependable in the midfield with a team-high nine assists on the season, along with three goals.

Falcon keeper Ali Shingler continues to guide the defense with her experience in the net.

Toledo enters this weekend in sixth place in the MAC standings with a conference record of 5-4-1 (10-6-1 overall). The squad has shown much improvement, qualifying for the post-season MAC Tournament for the first time since 2000.

Much of the squad’s improvement is owed to standout Kelly Langenbeck, senior. Langenbeck, a team captain, leads the Rockets with eight goals on the season.

The Falcons plan to show that their number one MAC standing is no accident by playing the way the have been over the past few weeks.

“We have to make sure to do the things that got us into this position,” Richards said.

A win today will not only give BG the MAC regular season crown, but a No. 1 seed in the post-season tournament as well. Last season, the Falcons were the bottom seed.

This afternoon’s match will kickoff at 3 p.m. at Toledo’s Scott Park Field.
