  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Women’s soccer loses two during weekend

The BG women’s soccer team remains winless after being defeated in both Mid-American Conference road matches this weekend.

The Falcons lost 0-1 to Buffalo on Friday, Oct. 18. Both teams remained scoreless at the half, but Karen McMahon’s goal for the Bulls in the second half near the 55 minute mark elevated them to the win. BG senior Ivi Casagrande had the best chance to score for the Falcons, sending a kick toward the goal with under six minutes remaining before halftime, but the ball ricocheted off the crossbar.

The Bulls outshot the Falcons 22-4, with all of BG’s shotscoming in the first half. On the other side of the ball, BG made 11 total saves to Buffalo’s one save.

Buffalo had a narrow 5-3 margin in corner kicks. Buffalo advanced to 5-7-2 overall and 2-5-0 in MAC play.

Akron defeated the Falcons in Sunday’s match 2-1. BG took an early lead off of senior Madeline Wideman’s unassisted goal near the 22 minute mark in the first half.

The Zips made a second-half comeback, scoring two goals towards the end. The Zips’ Amber Kern scored off of a penalty kick 62 minutes into the game and teammate Lani Smith finished off the Falcons with a goal at a little over four minutes remaining. Akron moved to 5-8-3 overall and 2-5-1 in the MAC.

“Winning is the hardest thing to do in sports, and it isn’t just talent based, but mentally based,” head coach Lindsay Basalyga said. “I am proud of this team and their commitment to step on the field and be a little bit stronger than the moment before. They could have shut down weeks ago, but there is a strong desire to leave the program in a better place than they found it, and that takes guts and courage. I can work with guts and courage.”
