Clarion Staff Report

After going 2-2 in its last four matches, the Madison College women’s soccer team will finish the season with a better record than it posted a year ago.

Last year, the WolfPack finished 5-7-2 overall. The team currently stands and 6-5-1 and with just two matches left is guaranteed a better overall record than it posted in its inaugural season.

How much better will depend on how the team does against Concordia University JV on Oct. 12 and Harper College on Oct. 14.

In its most recent match, Madison College suffered a 3-1 loss to College of DuPage at home on Oct. 9. DuPage scored the game’s first two goals, before Katie Travis scored Madison College’s only goal at 69 minutes and 53 seconds into the match.

The WolfPack actually out-shot its opponent, 15-7, but was unable to convert on enough of its shots.
