As the academic year comes to a close, the fall season of Butler Women’s Club Soccer is right around the corner! Although playing outside on the inches of snow sounds enticing, many of the club soccer players, both men and women, joined together to play in an indoor league. With games every week, this was a great opportunity to stay active and get touches on the ball. The competition was fierce, but the joint co-ed BU club soccer team gave it their all. We can’t wait for the next season to start, so stay tuned for more updates!
We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break! As we head into a new semester soon, our team is looking forward to electing a new executive board to serve for the next year! If anyone is interested in running for President, Vice President, Treasurer, or Secretary, please let Rachel know. Also, we are planning on playing on a co-ed indoor soccer throughout next semester! Contact Rachel is you are interested in playing.
Today we had two home games vs. Ball State and Notre Dame. We tied Ball State 0-0 with several good chances on goal. In our second game, we tied Notre Dame 1-1. Our goal was scored by one of our first-year players Maggie Hunt on an incredible counterattack. All in all, we had a great day and look forward to two more games next weekend!
Our season is now in full swing as we have two home games this Sunday and will be traveling next weekend for games as well. A full list of our games, locations, and times can be found under the schedule tab on the top of this page.
Our first game vs. Ohio University was not how we pictured our start to the season. Unfortunately, we lost 0-4. We took this as a learning opportunity and worked very hard in practice the next week on areas we could improve upon.
This past Saturday, we traveled to Peoria, IL where we played Bradley University. We beat Bradley 3-0 with first-year players Chloe Kotrba scoring one goal and Anna Charron scoring the other two. The team played very well together and had a great time bonding to and from the game.
We are working hard this week and hope to have great outcomes this weekend!
Congratulations to all of the new players who made the club team this year! We are so excited to have you and we look forward to our first game together this Sunday!
