Two back-to-back weekends full of soccer for the Dawgs!
The team started off a 3-game weekend with a 0-0 tie against DePaul on September 24th. Both teams played a good game, and in the end, the Dawgs were unable to finish, despite many chances and near-misses. The team drew another tie with Ball State for a final score of 1-1 during the second game of the weekend, scoring within the final minutes to even up the match. The team fell 1-4 to Notre Dame during the second game on October 25th, and third game of the weekend. It was evident that the fatigue associated with a 3-game weekend had set it, but the Dawgs did their best and finished out the game strong.
After a week of practice and recovery, the Dawgs were ready to take on opponents Indiana University and Purdue. The team had an early start as it traveled to Bloomington, IN for the two games on October 2nd. A muddy field and damp, foggy conditions couldn’t stop the Dawgs, who tied 1-1 with IU in the first game. After a short break, the Dawgs came back strong and were able to defeat Purdue 1-0 in what was the best game of the season so far.
After two full weekends, of soccer, the Dawgs have a break until October 23rd, where the team will take on Indiana State at home for their final game of the season. As always, the season has flown by fast. Be sure to come out and show your support on the 23rd; kickoff is at 2pm. Go Dawgs!
