ENC’s men’s and women’s soccer teams hold 0-1 conference records at two weeks into the season.
The women’s team holds a 3-4 overall record, including a 2-1 win in overtime against Wheaton, regionally ranked 6th in the NSCAA.
Men’s soccer boasts a 3-2 overall record with wins against Wheelock and Lesley.
The ENC women’s soccer team clenched a 2-0 victory over Moravian College in a match on September 6 while the ENC men’s soccer team saw a defeat with a score of 0-3 against Clark University the same day.
This was the women’s soccer team’s first winning game of the year, bringing their season record to 1-3.
The team scored two goals in the second half to snatch victory from Moravian.
Sophomore Katherine Lawrence (Marlborough, Conn.) scored the first goal of the match, her first of the season, at the 61 minute mark.
Shortly after, sophomore Hannah Scahill (Quaker Hill, Conn.) scored the second goal for ENC, also her first of the season.
Goalkeeper and junior Kristen Farley (Westminster, Mass.) successfully blocked all goal attempts in her first shutout of the season.
“It was great to get that first win, and hopefully there are more to come,” senior Tina Corey (Canterbury, Conn.) commented post-game.
The men’s soccer team suffered its first loss of the season this year in a tough match against Clark. The Lions kept it close in the first half, but were simply outscored in a tough second half.
“It was a tough loss, and it’s never fun to lose, but as a team we will learn from this and be better from it,” junior David Eddings (Endicott, N.Y.) remarked.
The men’s team bounced back from this loss in their home match against Wheelock with a 9-0 victory.
Men’s soccer plays their next home game against Becker on Sept. 16 at 4:30 p.m. Women’s soccer will also play on Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Regis College.
