Women’s soccer had a tough, but disappointing fight for first place Saturday’s senior night game against the Colby-Sawyer Chargers.
The Spartans took the lead early in the fifth minute when junior Jenna Bostwick curled the ball into the net off a corner.
“My first corner in warm-ups, I tried to curve it in and I did,” she said. “I was like ‘Huh, maybe I’ll try to do it in the game’ and it actually happened.”
However, the Chargers struck back in the 30th minute with a goal by Michelle Upham to tie the game.
Overall, the Spartans weren’t happy with their play.
“Honestly I think that’s the worst we played all year,” said head coach Chris Chapdelaine. “We didn’t play well; we didn’t stick to our game plan.”
The Chargers came out with a quick goal in the second half in the 47th minute to put them up 2-1.
The Spartans had many opportunities to make a comeback, but were just unable to finish.
“Anytime you’re playing for first place, or a big game, you’ve got to show up and if you don’t show up, you’re going to get beat, and that’s what happened,” Chapdelaine said.
The Spartans will get another chance at the Chargers later in the season.
“We’re definitely gonna beat them next time,” said senior captain Kelsey Lenney. “This is a nice kick in the butt for us to get going.”
