Archers Blanked by SWIC, Drop Second Straight Game

September 16, 2011

For the first time this year, an opponent of the St. Louis Community College women’s soccer team was able to completely stifle the Archers’ offense.

Southwest Illinois College held the Archers scoreless, while adding three goals of their own, defeating STLCC 3-0, the second consecutive loss for the Archers.

The game served as an improvement defensively and in goal for the Archers, who on Tuesday fell behind 5-1 against Lewis and Clark, en route to a 6-3 loss. Sophomore Beth Hatley (Mascoutah, Ill.) played the entire game again goal for the Archers, allowing SWIC to score three goals on 12 shots.

Despite Hatley’s efforts to keep the Archers close, the STLCC offense that has been so successful early this season remained quiet.

The Archers entered the game averaging five goals per game, and have four players — sophomore forward Erica Kaiping (Waterloo, Ill.), sophomore defender Jessica Schlichtig (Bayless), and freshman forwards Brittany Russell (Columbia, Ill.) and Johnna Randick (Fox) — who have each scored at least four goals, with Russell leading the team with seven.

The Archers (4-3 overall, 0-1 Midwestern Community College Athletic Conference) will look to end their two-game slide next week, but will need to do it on the road, as they embark on five consecutive games outside St. Louis. The Archers will begin their road trip Tuesday (Sept. 20) when they travel to Cottleville, Mo., to face MCCAC opponent St. Charles Community College in a 2 p.m. match.
