Tabor women lose in soccer to KWU and Bethel

The Tabor College women?s soccer team finished a tough road schedule with losses to Kansas Wesleyan and Bethel last week.

Tabor lost to perennial powerhouse Kansas Wesleyan, 9-0, Wednesday. Tabor struggled against a strong Coyote defense and was unable to record a single shot on goal.

Kalee Cross and Chelsea Brown split the goalkeeper?s position. Cross allowed seven goals and recorded five saves while Brown allowed two goals and had one save.

Tabor struggled again Saturday at Bethel, falling 4-1 to the Threshers.

?We defended pretty well, tactically, but we didn?t make enough defensive plays in our penalty area,? coach Grant Brubacher said. ?We had a couple of chances to add to our one goal, but were unable to do so.?

Bethel took the lead with a goal by Brooke Hansen 22 minutes into the first half. The Threshers scored again 16 minutes later, extending the lead, 2-0.

Tabor answered with a goal by Victoria Cantu just two minutes later. But Bethel proved to be too much for the Bluejays, scoring two more goals before the game was over.

Cantu lead the offense with one goal and two shots on goal. Adria Whitehorn added one assist and Dayna Wohlgemuth added one shot on goal.

Cross played the entire game at goalkeeper, allowing four goals and marking seven saves.

Coming?Tabor (1-4-2, 1-12-3) plays at home against Friends at 5 p.m. Wednesday. The Bluejays then will travel to Lindsborg for the final game of the regular season against Bethany at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
