So far this season, the WolfPack are undefeated at home, having kicked off their season with back-to-back shutouts. But there are some improvements that still need to be made, according to coach Matt Schwartz.

“We have a lot get done organizationally,” said Schwartz. “They need to work on how quickly move the ball around the field. Looking for more one touch and two touch opportunities while we are playing. We need to a better job at finishing our opportunities when we get chances on goal.”

The first home game was against Rock Valley College on Aug. 30, which Madison College won, 1-0. Peyton Trapino scored the only goal of the game, her first goal of the season. Trapino’s goal was assisted by Breanne Kreklow. The WolfPack had seven shots on goal. Goalie Brandie Gospodarek made three saves.

The WolfPack dominated the game against Illinois Valley Community College on Sept. 3, winning, 9-0, with 28 shots on goal.

Britt Schumann, Esther Noriega and Kreklow all scored two goals in the match. Trapino had one goal and three assists. Gospodarek made one save during the game.

“I like the way possessed we the ball, we held the ball for 95 percent of the game. We were able to execute keeping it,” Schwartz said after the game about how the WolfPack preformed.

For their next game, the WolfPack travels to Milwaukee Area Technical College on Sept. 13 at 4 p.m. The next home game will be on Sept. 15 against Joliet Junior College at 4 p.m.
