Women’s soccer nets No. 50 for Wachsman

Zachary McFerren

It has been a tough road for the Missouri Southern women’s soccer team.

Despite coming off of three straight losses, the Lions have still earned two important conference wins, showing an aggressive offense. The Lions out shot Missouri Western 22-10 overall and 10-5 shots on goal in their 1-0 win.

They almost doubled their shot attempts in their victory against Emporia.

The win was Head Coach Trevor Wachsman’s 50th career win.

“The 50th win is more of a milestone for the players and the individuals we have had over the past six years,” Wachsman said. “We have had great support and everyone has worked hard on and off the field.”

The Lions cannot be complacent in the rest of their season playing the same difficult conference teams.

“Small things can determine the result of the match,” Wachsman said. “As we see these teams the second time, we continue to work and improve game-to-game, win or lose.”

The Lions are well aware that there is no time to quit as Wachsman prepares them for every game diligently.

“We have been playing pretty good soccer and we will continue to focus on the quality of our play,” Llewellyn said. “We try to prepare everyday for each game. Everyday at practice we always give everything we can just to get even that much better. We try to focus on one game at a time.”

Even though they faced a tough 1-0 loss to Central Missouri on Oct. 18, the Lions have shown progress.

The team, which consists of thirteen-freshmen is understanding the system and trying to establish a sounder defense.
