“We had a great start to the game but weren’t able to hold onto the lead unfortunately. It was nice to be back on our home field after being on the road for the past month. We are starting to find our rhythm again and hopefully we can build on this heading into Wednesday’s match against Holy Cross,” said Coach Olson.
The ladies got on the board first after a great strike from Carly Bermes on a free kick. USF would go on to score three goals to seal the game to earn their second CCAC win.

Women's Soccer Takes CCAC Loss
The Crimson Wave women’s soccer fell to 10th ranked Robert Morris 3-0 on Tuesday night. It was a tough break for the ladies as they were looking to earn their first CCAC win of the season.
“Things didn’t go our way last night. I thought we started the game very well. We were moving the ball and keeping possession. We gave up an early goal and weren’t able to recover. We need to get back to our scoring ways that we found earlier in the season. It will be nice to be back on our home field this weekend as we get ready for St. Francis,” said Coach Olson.
The women’s team will host the University of St. Francis on Saturday. Kickoff is at noon and will be played at East Chicago Central High School.
Ladies Fall to North Park
9/20/14 - The Crimson Wave women’s soccer team fell to North Park University 2-0 on Saturday. It was a tough break for the ladies after a two week period where they didn’t have any games.
“We were a little out of sync but we were able to finish the game strong even though we didn’t get the result we wanted. North Park earned their victory as they played well. We had our chances to finish and came up short. We will learn from this and now our attention is turned to Robert Morris on Tuesday,” said Coach Olson.
The Crimson Wave outshot North Park 24-9 but failed to score a goal. Carly Bermes rocketed one off of the cross bar near the end of the first half that nearly tied the game. The Crimson Wave attack hit their stride in the final few minutes as North Park gave up five corner kicks during the end of the second half.
The ladies will return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Arlington Heights to take on Robert Morris University.
