Women’s Georgia Southern Soccer mid-season review

Marqus Williams

The women’s Georgia Southern soccer team (5-8-1) has had an up and down season, with more downs than ups. They started the season losing their first two games and tying their third before going on a three-game hot streak.

Those three wins brought excitement to the team as they won each game by one goal. After that win streak the Eagles have lost six of their last eight and are (2-5) in conference play.

Their next three games start off with a home game at Eagle Field before they take their talents on the road at Arkansas Little Rock and Arkansas State.

Beating App State would be huge for the Eagles going into their road stretch, but the greater reward would be for the Eagles to win their last three games and finish the season with a .500 record going (8-8-1) overall and (5-5) in conference play.

Defense is a top priority for the Eagles as they need to force their opponents to the sideline and pressure them into creating chances from crosses and outside the box. The Eagles have the ability to score in any game and have a good chance of building momentum heading into the playoffs.

Junior Sarah Price, seniors Jennifer Wittick and Alana McShane, and sophomore Junique Rodriguez all play a crucial role in leading this team to success. If the can elevate the teams play in theses final games, the Eagles could be something special this season.
