Archers Lose a Pair in Kansas City
October 10, 2011
|Katie Foytlin netted a goal in a 3-2 loss to Metro-
politan Community College-Blue River on Saturday.
Just days after holding Missouri Valley College to one goal en route to a 2-1 victory, the St. Louis Community College women’s soccer team was unable to contain Metropolitan Community College over the weekend, as the Archers lost 3-2 to MCC-Blue River on Saturday, and to MCC-Maple Woods 4-3 on Sunday.
In both games, MCC scored in bunches, forcing the Archers to play from behind. In Saturday’s game, Blue River scored twice in the first four minutes. Goals by freshman forward Brittany Russell (Columbia, Ill.) and freshman midfielder Katie Foytlin (Belleville East) helped the Archers claw back in the game, but a Blue River goal in the 63rd minute would provide the Trail Blazers a lead they would not relinquish.
Freshman midfielder Katie Lanciault
Sunday’s game began much more promising, with freshman midfielder Katie Lanciault (Festus) scoring in the 16th minute to give the Archers a brief 1-0 lead. That lead was wiped out by a three-goal flurry by Maple Woods in a 12-minute span. The Archers came back on the strength of second-half goals by Foytlin and sophomore forward Erica Kaiping (Waterloo, Ill.) to even the score at 3-3. But with just four minutes remaining, Maple Woods delivered the decisive goal, sending the Archers to a pair of one-goal losses on the weekend.
Freshman Meggin Werner (Mehlville) played the entirety of each game in goal, allowing a total of seven goals on 18 shots.
The Archers will play three consecutive home games this week, beginning Tuesday (Oct. 11) against St. Charles Community College and Thursday (Oct. 13) against Lindenwood University-Belleville. Both matches begin at 4 p.m. at Meramec. They close out the home portion of the season on Sunday (Oct. 16) against Dakota Tech in an 11 a.m. contest at the Florissant Valley campus.
