USM men get thumped by Friends University
Facing a must win situation, the University of Saint Mary women’s soccer team found itself facing a 1-0 disadvantage at Friends University early in the second half.
However, following a quick Saint Mary reply from Claire Beebe, Jennifer Nye stuck in her 13th goal of the year that eventually became the game winner.
“Once they scored in the second half, we knew our season was on the line,” USM coach Justin Seever said. “We scored a couple of our better goals and then spent the final 20 minutes withstanding a crazy onslaught.”
With the 2-1 victory, USM can almost assuredly clinch a spot in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament with a win today over visiting Tabor. The match begins at 1:30 p.m.
The University of Saint Mary men’s soccer team also played Friends University Saturday, where it lost 9-1.
Adam Newbanks record the Spires’ lone goal in the first half. USM, 5-12 overall and 2-6 in the KCAC, will finish its season today against Tabor at 4 p.m.
