October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the country, and it is no different at Heidelberg University. Seventh year head coach Nick Spell and the Heidelberg women’s soccer team showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness with their Shoot for the Cure match against the Crusaders of Capital University. But, even with bright pink scattered around Mayer Field the Berg ladies lost the match, 1-0.
Freshman goalkeeper Julie Cross (Bowling Green) grabbed seven saves for the Berg and kept the Crusaders scoreless until late in the second half. Cross has collected 84 saves thus far in her freshman campaign, and boasts a .800 save percentage.
Sophomore Stephanie Crossman (Dayton/Bellbrook) tallied one shot on goal for the Student Princes. Offensively, Crossman leads the team in shots with nine.
Sophomore Kristen Smith (Lancaster/Bloom Carroll) also tallied a shot on goal against the Crusaders.
Freshmen Shannon Angel (Hudson) and Brittany Yost (Castalia/Margaretta) respectively recorded a shot and a shot on goal for the Berg.
The Heidelberg ladies seemed to be on the way to overtime, until the Crusaders netted a goal in the 85th minute.
The Heidelberg women fall to 2-8-1 on the year and 1-2 in the Ohio Athletic Conference.
The Heidelberg women return to action against the Yellow Jackets of Baldwin Wallace University on Tuesday, October 9. The game from Berea will be broadcast on SportsTime Ohio at 11:00 pm later that evening. Kickoff from Tressel Field is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
