MATCHDAY: Women’s football suffers its first defeat of the season

The final women’s soccer game of the season took place on October 5 at 4 p.m. at Lewis-Chen Field. The team lost its first game of the season to the Dallas Baptist University Patriots, who took home a 2-0 win.

SEU opened the game with long passes and created chances, but DBU, dressed in red, was able to change courts and score their first goal almost 12 minutes into the game. Generating momentum, the Patriots attempted three more shots, one of which was immediately stopped by Hilltopper’s goaltender Abby Carlson.
