The Shorewomen finished up their season on Saturday with a conference game against 13th ranked Dickinson. Playing strong until the end, Washington College honored their four seniors with a hard fought match.
The Red Devils scored a goal in each half of the game. The first goal was scored on a rebound off a saved shot at 37:53. The second goal was scored quickly after halftime with a shot into the lower left corner. The Red Devils held an 18-8 edge in shots while both teams had 3 corner kicks.
Ripple had eleven saves in the loss for the Shorewomen.
WC held their own in this season’s match against Dickinson more so than the other seasons. Looking back, in 2008 the score was 7-0 followed by 2009’s score of 6-0, Dickinson achieving the victories.
Slowly seeing improvement, WC looks ahead to next year’s season with hope. The Shorewomen end their 2010 season with a record of (4-11-1, 0-10) saying goodbye to their four seniors Katelyn Malchester, Quinn Cowley, Katie Weida, and Becca Nicely.
Assistant Coach Amanda Lebo comments on the season saying, “We had a very good, but frustrating 2010 season. We have a few things to fine tune for next year – which we will be able to do during the spring.“
Looking forward to next season, she says, “Overall the upcoming 2011 season is looking to be a very positive and successful one. The 2010 season brought the Shorewomen a long way and the final game against Dickinson leaves us on a positive note for game 1 of the 2011 season.”
“Personally, I am looking forward to the 2011 season and cannot wait to see what it holds for the Shorewomen soccer program,” said Lebo.
