Coming off of a birth in the USCAA tourney, The SMCC Ladies soccer team have some work to do in order to restore last year’s form. The pressure is on the Ladies as they are trying to relive last year’s 10-3-2 season in which they only lost one game in conference.
The Men find themselves comfortably at 4-2-1 and looking to extend a two game winning streak into the month of October.
The Lady Seawolves traveled down to Lincoln, RI to square off against the Community College of Rhode Island for a non-conference matchup. CCRI proved early and often to have the superior squad, as they finished the day with a 7-0 shutout.
The soccer gods would not shine on the men’s squad favorably on September 15th as they fell to Bowdoin’s Junior Varsity squad by one goal, resulting in a 1-2 loss. Harrison Charwat scored the lone goal for the Seawolves, as they fell behind early in the second half and failed to equal the score as the contest progressed.
On the 17th, both the men and the women soccer team made the trek to The University of Maine – Machias. Both teams struggled to find their offense, and lost by identical scores of 0-2.
Central Maine Community College visited for a contest against the men and women on the afternoon of the 21st. The men and women both found themselves victorious, but the women were able to post an impressive victory, 10-1 against the rival Mustangs. Sophomore Hannah Fields put on a dominant performance, ending the day with four goals and three assists.
Unity college hosted SMCC men and women for a pair of games on the 24th. A tense day ensued as the men’s game was decided by a goal in double overtime by Jonathan Lipika and assisted by Douglas Cloutier. The men wound up on the positive side of a 3-2 double overtime win, while the women could not muster enough offense to equalize a one goal deficit and fell to Unity 1-2.
The men are comfortably sitting above the .500 mark, while the women are struggling to climb above it. As the postseason fast approaches, the men and women are looking to both become threats in the YSCC.
Today the men travel to CMCC to face off against the Mustangs for a 4:00 PM scheduled start time. The Women’s next contest will be played at 1:00 PM on October 2nd at SMCC. The Ladies will try to avenge a loss from earlier in the season against UMaine Machias.
