This past weekend was good for both St. Catharine soccer teams as each team improved to 3-1 early in the season.
Last Saturday, the women hosted Berea College and the Lady Pats came out on top, 2-0.
Lee Ann Walker made three saves during the match to preserve the shutout, her second of the season.
This past Sunday, the men’s soccer team earned a 5-2 win over Southern State College in Hillsboro, Ohio.
Through most of the first half, SCC had control of the ball and the game, but were unable to score a second goal despite out-shooting Southern State 17-4.
At halftime, the game was tied 1-1 but SCC came out on fire in the second half. Goals by Isaac Blanford, Jonathan Engstrom and Patrick Williams put SCC in the lead for good while Adam Gilchrist added the fifth and final goal for SCC as they won 5-2.
This weekend will be a busy one for the men as they host Ohio Christian University on Saturday and Shawnee State pays a visit on Sunday.
The women will head to Midway College on Thursday before returning home this Saturday as St. Mary of the Woods College takes the field at SCC.
