Losses end TC women?s soccer season

The Bluejay women?s soccer team ended its 2010 season with losses against Friends at home and Bethany in Lindsborg last week.

Tabor opened the week on Wednesday with its last home game against Friends University.

Despite a tough defensive effort by the women on senior night, the Bluejays eventually fell to the Falcons, 0-2.

Both teams kept each other out of the net for most of the first half until Friends? Lisa Nguyen put a shot past Tabor?s Kalee Cross to give the Falcons a 1-0 advantage with five minutes left in the first half.

The second half nearly matched the first as neither team scored until Friends put another ball in the net to stretch the lead at 2-0 with just over five minutes left in the contest.

Tabor?s Victoria Cantu led the offense with two shots. Dayna Wohlgemuth and Jessica Yraceburu added one shot each.

Cross played the entire game at goalkeeper and led the defensive effort with an impressive 10 saves and two allowed goals.

Tabor finished the week and season with a 2-4 loss against Bethany Saturday.

The Swedes took the early 1-0 advantage 12 minutes into the game with a goal by Shannon Singleton.

Tabor?s Molly Clark connected with the net 15 minutes into the second half to even the score at 1-1.

Not to be outdone, Bethany?s Amanda Lopez scored two goals within six minutes of Tabor?s tying score to regain and stretch the lead to 3-1.

The Bluejays cut into Bethany?s lead once more with just over 20 minutes left in the half on a goal by Yraceburu.

Bethany got the final word, however, sealing the game with another goal by Lopez to end the game at 4-2.

Despite the score, Tabor had a big offensive game with many players taking shots on goal.

Clark and Yraceburu led the offense with one goal each. Megan Beals added one assist and four shots on goal.

Dayna Wohlgemuth took two shots on goal while Adria Whitehorn, Brooke Eitzen and Stephanie Lappin added one shot on goal each.

The goalkeeper position was split between Cross, Katie Mount and Chelsea Brown. Mount allowed one goal and notched six saves, Brown allowed three goals and tallied six saves while Cross neither allowed nor blocked any goals.

Tabor ends the season with a conference record of 1-6-2 and a non-conference record of 1-14-3.
