  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]
  • Books I Started but Never Finished
    My biggest book insecurity is not finishing a book. Even if I don’t care for the story I will usually try to still finish it. I’ve been known to force myself into finishing books I absolutely hate. I’m afraid of wasting time, but in my head if I’ve already read more than halfway it would […]

Women’s soccer falls to Spartans in East Lansing

The BG women’s soccer team remains winless with their loss to Michigan State on Friday. The Spartans won the battle in East Lansing 3-1. MSU advances to an overall record of 5-0-2, while the Falcons fall to 0-4-0 on the season.

MSU got off to an early start with their first goal near the 15 minute mark. Bowling Green tied the game up 1-1 with a goal by senior Kaitlyn Tobin late in the first half. Tobin’s goal was the only shot BG took in the game, whereas Michigan State was able to get off 28 shots. The Falcons recorded 7 total saves, 6 of which were by goalkeeper Lauren Cadel. The last save came as a team save. Since BG scored on their only shot attempt, MSU was unable to make any saves. head coach Lindsay Basalyga maintains focus on her team’s successes with each week, instead of focusing on what the opponent is or is not doing well. The Falcons are looking at the positive progress they are making with each game, and how they can apply that to their next match as they continue to seek their first win of the season.

“For 90 minutes, we focused on what we celebrate and we forced Michigan State to find a way to beat us instead of us beating ourselves,” said Basalyga. “I’m really looking forward to our next opportunity to compete.”

The Falcons did have reason to celebrate during this game. Tobin’s goal, assisted by senior Madeline Wideman, is the first for Bowling Green against Michigan State in the last six years. However, Michigan State added on another win Friday in this ongoing series battle between the two teams, now leading BG 15-1-2 overall.

BG will have a quick chance to redeem themselves as they travel to the University of Detroit Mercy Tuesday, Sept. 17 for another match at 3 p.m.
