Lady Eagles bring home two victories

The women’s soccer team traveled to Texas this past week to play Southwestern A.G. and Texas Wesleyan. The Lady Eagles won both games, putting them 6-1 in their conference schedule.

Their match on Saturday against Texas Wesleyan ended after a goal by junior Adrienne Kennedy in double overtime.

“I was really proud of the effort the girls put in tonight,” said head coach Kathleen Paulsen in a press release written by Nicolas Robinson director of sports information. “They made the decision to fight, to grind and show resolve. “There’s nothing more I could ask for.”

Freshman Sarah Hill believed her team worked well as a unit.

“I think we stepped up and worked really hard together, especially during the two overtime periods,” Hill said. “Everyone was giving their absolute best, and we were all pushing each other to keep pursuing victory.”

Kennedy’s goal was made in the 106th minute with the assistance of freshman Braydi Frederick.

The women are ranked No. 1 in the Sooner Athletic Conference as of Tuesday with Oklahoma City close behind.

“We need to improve on movement of the ball and keeping our spacing as we progress up the field,” Hill said. “Right now, it’s all about refining what we’ve been doing all season to prepare for our upcoming games.”

The women will face Northwood on Saturday at 11 a.m.
