Lauren Whelan, Sports Editor

After dropping two games to Boston University and Duquesne, the tough weekend for the women’s soccer team brought their overall record this season to 4-5-1. With a combined six goals scored against them across the two games, the Orange and Blue struggled to match these with goals of their own, posting scores of 4-0 and 2-0 in the games, respectively.

Traveling to Boston to start up their Patriot League play, the Bison faced reigning Patriot League champions Boston University for a challenging opening match. The offense for the Terriers was spread throughout the game, with two goals being scored in each half. The closest opportunity for the Bison came in the 30th minute, when Madison Loos ’16 was able to direct a header towards the net, which was ultimately saved by Boston. Talia Szatkowski ’19 and Kendall Ham ’18 were also able to get a shot on the net, though they were unable to land a goal for the Orange and Blue.

After a tough defeat, the Bison traveled to Pittsburgh for their final non-conference game of the season against Duquesne. The goals came more quickly for Duquesne, with both goals occurring in the first half of the game. The Bison allowed the first goal in the 27th minute, while the second goal arrived in the 40th minute. Though the Bison were able to hold off the Duquesne offense in the second half of the game, they were unable to spark offense of their own. Loos, Ham, and Cora Climo ’17 each attempted shots for the Orange and Blue but were unable to capitalize and find the net.

The Bison will host their first home conference game against Holy Cross on Sept. 26.
