  • 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 […]

Women’s soccer does it again

The Bowling Green women’s soccer team wasn’t having a case of deja vu yesterday afternoon. The team really did upset a number one seeded team for the second consecutive year, securing a spot in the Mid-American Conference Tournament semifinals.

Kent State proved to be a worthy opponent, taking BG into overtime with the score tied at one, but the Falcons were at the top of their game. The squad took control in a second overtime period to win the game with a score of 2-1.

BG’s Kristy Coppes opened scoring 32:22 into the game. Julie Trundle’s free kick found Lindsay Carter, who passed to Coppes for the finish. The Falcon’s lead was short-lived, as the Golden Flashes answered back just five minutes later. Kent State’s Amanda Messer passed the ball to teammate Kimberly Dimitroff, who found the net at 37:35.

Neither team could score in the second half, sending the match to the first overtime. Again, the period passed without either team scoring. Nearly nine minutes into the second half, BG stepped up with a play that would end the game.

Trundle took a BG free kick that found the head of Britt Anderson in the six yard box. Anderson expertly headed the ball into the lower right corner to end the match.

“We talked right before the second overtime about how the little things were going to make a difference, and the little things were really important,” head coach Andy Richards said after the game.

The Falcon’s were the only lower seeded team to make it out of the quarterfinal round. They will face Western Michigan in semifinal action on Friday.
