After a 5-3 non-conference win against Lincoln Christian University last week, the Eutectic women's soccer team fell to AMC teams Freed-Hardeman University and William Woods University today and Saturday. Today the Lady Euts struggled against a strong Freed-Hardeman team (8-4, 6-1 AMC), falling 9-0 at the Lions' home field in Henderson, Tenn. On Saturday, the STLCOP team lost at home to the William Woods University Owls (8-4-1, 5-1-1 AMC), 5-0.
On Saturday in the rain against the Owls at SLUH, Christina Arackal (SR/Lawrenceville, Ga.) had the Eutectics' only shot on goal, as WWU booted 14 of their own at STLCOP goalkeeper Kylee Lewis (FR/Fisk, Mo.). Lewis made eight saves, but was unable to keep five from passing by. Shelby Scanlan marked the board for WWU at 19 minutes off an assist from Aurora Henriksen. A minute later, Elyssa Cappaert scored the Owls' second goal. The 2-0 score would not change until after halftime, when Scanlan would hit another one six minutes into the second half. Claire Stark scored the final two goals by the Owls, one with an assist from Henriksen, to get WWU's score up to five.
Today, the Lions peppered Lewis with 20 shots on goal, making nine of them count, despite Lewis' 11 saves. STLCOP's Cynthia Arackal (FR/Lawrenceville, Ga.) had the team's only shot on goal this time. FHU's Taylor Woods, Samantha Clymer, and Nina Carolissen combined for the Lions' five goals in the first half. Then, Clymer earned her hat trick-plus-one in the second half. After that, teammates Kayla Boutwell and Lauren Rogers added two more to the FHU total.
Lewis still ranks in the top 15 in the NAIA for Total Saves (#10 at 93) and Saves per Game (#11 at 9.30) and ranks third and second in the conference in those categories.
The Lady Euts have yet to win a conference game this season, but still have four AMC games on the schedule. Now 3-8 (0-7 AMC), the Euts' next chance at a conference win will be on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 4:30 p.m. in Belleville, Ill., as they take on the Lindenwood University- Belleville Lynx.
