Archer Women Cruise Past Dakota County Tech

In what was the final home game of 2011 for the St. Louis Community College women’s soccer team, the Archers appeared to be ready for the upcoming postseason.
The Archers cruised to a 3-1 win over Dakota County Tech in a match that wasn’t as close as the score would indicate.
Aside from a second-half goal by Dakota County that trimmed the deficit to 2-1, STLCC remained in control for the entirety of the contest.
That being said, the early scoring chances gone unfulfilled did not sit particularly well with head coach Juergen Huettner.
“We had plenty of chances to score more than we did,” Huettner said. “We need to put our chances away, but getting that insurance late was nice to see.”
Freshmen midfielders Katie Foytlin (Belleville East) and Brooke Valleroy (Cape Girardeau, Mo.) scored goals before sophomore forward Erica Kaiping (Waterloo, Ill.) added an insurance tally in the second half. Kaiping’s goal was her team-high 12th of the season.
Goalie Meggin Werner (Mehlville) turned away six of Dakota County’s seven shots in her 90 minutes in the net.
The win pushed the Archers to 10-8 on the season, with one regular-season game remaining. The Archers will travel to Lewis and Clark Community College Thursday in what is currently the regular-season finale.
However, Huettner left open the possibility of adding another game to the schedule, possibly a third game against Lindenwood University-Belleville, who STLCC defeated 4-2 on Oct. 13.
That arrangement could work to the Archers’ advantage, as it would allow sophomore midfielder Sarah Cook (Northwest) to play one more game before the Region XVI Tournament begins on Oct. 28. Cook was forced to miss two games following a red card Thursday against Lindenwood-Belleville.
Sophomores Kaiping, Cook, Beth Hatley (Mascoutah, Ill.), Allison Ring (Incarnate Word), Lauren Spina (Chicago, Ill.), Ashley Pieper (Sullivan, Mo.), Jena Shaw (Borgia) and Jessica Schlichtig (Bayless) were honored for their participation with STLCC during halftime. All except Shaw, who attended Missouri Valley College last year, attended STLCC for two years.
