Women’s soccer

By Rebecca Dann

Ladies soccer suffered their first loss of the season this past Saturday to John Carroll University’s (JCU) Blue Streaks from University Heights, Ohio. Camila Kirtzman ’18 scored the Ladies’ only goal in the second half. This marked Kirtzman’s first collegiate goal — an impressive feat, given the opponent’s tough defense.

Although Kenyon lost, they still put up an impressive fight. The Ladies attempted 25 shots, compared to JCU’s five.

On Tuesday, the Ladies attempted to redeem themselves, but were unable to grab the win on their home turf against Ohio Northern University (ONU) from Ada, Ohio, losing 4-1. Again, a first-year player made it past the opponent’s defense, when Virginia Fergusson ’18, assisted by Romaine, scored her first collegiate goal at the 29-minute mark. Fergusson’s goal tied the game at 1-1, but ONU scored three goals in the second half and built an insurmountable lead.
