The Husky soccer team had their opening game Friday against Northwest Missouri State.
The game was anything but boring.
It was a competitive road game for the Huskies. SCSU and the Bearcats tied 2-2 in double overtime.
The Huskies had 19 shots overall – 14 on goal. The Husky defense was led by 10 saves from goalkeeper, Julia Clifford. Bailly Drayton and Gabby Fleck were the point carriers for the Huskies, both scoring in the second half. Drayton’s shot was unassisted, while Fleck was assisted by senior teammate, CoCo Cammon.
For Drayton and Fleck, it was the first goals of their collegiate career.
SCSU senior, Mary Morhardt led the Huskies with six shots, four of them being on goal.
The Bearcats attempted 19 shots, 12 of them being on goal. The Huskies were able to pull ahead of their opponent 14 shots on goal to 12, keeping their motivation alive.
The Huskies are hoping to keep that same motivation alive throughout their season.
SCSU will travel to Minnesota State University - Moorhead on Sept. 2 for their second game of the season.
On Monday, Sept. 3, the Huskies will be playing on their own turf at Husky Stadium, facing Southwest Minnesota State University.
An exciting start for SCSU women’s soccer team, and hopefully it will only get better.
