Ladies Fall Short at Grace

Crimson Wave Women's Soccer8/23/14 -
The Crimson Wave women’s soccer team traveled to Winona Lake, Indiana to take on Grace College on Saturday evening. It was the most humid game of season so far as both teams were preparing for a muggy game. The Crimson Wave would fall 2-1 in the final minutes of the game to earn their first loss of the season.

Grace College came out and dictated the first half scoring an early goal in the first five minutes. From there, it became a defensive battle for CCSJ who weren’t able to generate much of an attack in the first half. The first half would come to a close with Grace ahead 1-0.

The second half was much better for CCSJ who came out strong earning the first few shots on goal. Junior Carly Bermes evened the odds when she cut across the top of the box and buried a shot that found the left corner of the goal. The pace of the game began to pick up as both teams were frantically trying to find that go ahead goal. It wasn’t until the final five minutes of the game when Grace College made a hard cross that bounced off of the Crimson Wave goalkeeper to give Grace the game winning goal.

“This was a great test for us early in the season. Grace College is a very good team and pushed us very hard. We started the game pretty flat but were able to pick things up in the second half. I am very proud with how well our back line played this evening as they had a lot of pressure on them. Overall as a team, we bounced back and showed how tough we are. We didn’t get the result we wanted but this shows our potential as a team that we can compete with anyone. We are now getting ready for our Crimson Wave Invite next weekend as we prepare for St. Mary of the Woods,” said Coach Olson.

The Crimson Wave will return to action on Saturday morning at 9am when they host St. Mary of the Woods to kick off the Crimson Wave Invite.

 

Ladies Win Opener over Marygrove

Crimson Wave Women's Soccer

8/21/14 - The Crimson Wave women’s soccer team started their regular season on a good note defeating Marygrove College 6-1 in the home opener. It was a humid day for a soccer gave as the thunderstorms blew past just in time to get the game started.

The first half began with an early strike from the Crimson Wave as Maritza Salas took a shot that pinged off of the left post in the first few seconds of the game. It wasn’t until the 25th minute when Sandra Narvaez dribbled the ball down the left wing and crossed it in where Maritza Salas was waiting to tuck it in the net to bring the score 1-0. Carly Bermes struck one off of the cross bar a few minutes later that was quickly recovered by the Marygrove goalkeeper. Marygrove evened the odds when Cheyenne York recovered a CCSJ deflection and tucked it into the corner. The first half came to a close at 1-1.

The second half belonged to CCSJ who came out on fire to start the half. Three minutes into the half, Lucia Neaves dribbled across the top of the box and tucked into the left corner to put CCSJ ahead 2-1. Sandra Narvaez was next in line for CCSJ who hit a 20 yard shot that went over the goalkeepers head for the third goal. In the 59th minute, Carly Bermes buried a thirty yard free kick that found the upper right corner of the goal to bring the score 4-1. Fatima Garcia and Katy Schmidt would each score a goal to bring the final score 6-1 at the end of the game.

“This is a great win for us as we begin our season. Marygrove is a good team and played hard the entire game. It was great to see my new players mix in with the returners to really stretch the field. I was very pleased with our possession as we were able to find the seams in the second half. Our young ladies have worked extremely hard this pre-season and the fruits of their labor are starting to show. We now turn our attention to Grace for Saturday evening’s matchup,” said Coach Olson.

The Crimson Wave will return to action this Saturday when they travel to Grace College. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm EST.

We are coming off of the best season in history for the women’s team, as we were a few points away from qualifying for the CCAC Tournament.
