  • 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 goes for postseason vs. UT

Any chance the Bowling Green women’s soccer team has of making it to the post-season Mid-American Conference Tournament lies in the results of tonight’s match against Toledo.

“If we win, we go [to the tournament]. If they win, they go. If we tie neither of us go,” head coach Andy Richards said.

The pressure of such an important game would normally create at least some jitters of nervousness in a team, but Richards said that oddly enough, the pressure of such a must-win situation is what his team thrives on. No extra motivation from the coaching staff is necessary.

“Their motivation is to go post-season, pure and simple. They are a team that responds really well when their back is against the wall. Psychologically, it’s really good for them,” he said.

The Falcons come into the match with an overall record of 6-10-2. They are 4-5-2 in the MAC. They team is coming off a 2-1 victory over Northern Illinois and a 2-2 tie in a sensational comeback against Western Michigan last weekend.

The Rockets have an overall record of 7-7-3 and are also 4-5-2 in the MAC. Toledo beat Northern Illinois last weekend as well, but fell to Western Michigan. They are sure to put up a strong fight as both teams battle for the same tournament spot.

“[Toledo] is a very competitive team,” Richards said. “They are well-coached and they are organized.”

With one day less to prepare than usual, the Falcons have tended to some bumps and bruises left over from an extremely physical Western Michigan game and are ready for action. The Falcon seniors, who played their last home game on Sunday, will be fighting to extend their season by at least one game and make it to the conference tournament for the third consecutive season.

The game will be played at Toledo Scott Park, with kickoff at 3 p.m.
