Bailey Ayres, Sports Editor

After scoring 14 goals in one game, the Madison College women’s soccer team has come up empty in its last two games. The team is now 3-4 overall, having lost two straight games by the score of 1-0.

According to coach Matthew Schwartz, health has played a role in the team’s recent struggles.

“The season has been hindered by injuries to this point,” Schwartz said. “We have been trying to get our starters healthy for most of the season and have had mixed results while trying to do this.”
Freshman defenseman Zoey Gurney sees the same thing.

“There is a lot of people who are getting sick and small, slight injuries and stuff that we had work on,” she said. “Just trying stay healthy and getting everything together.”
Schwartz expects play to improve once the team is back to 100 percent.

“If our starters are all on the field together we will be a very dangerous team for our opponents to face,” Schwartz said.
The next home game is Friday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m. against Triton College.
