UW-Superior Women’s Soccer began WIAC play last weekend falling to the UW-Platteville Pioneers.
The Pioneers were too much to handle for the short benched Yellowjackets. The Jackets only had 13 players appear in the match due to illness, and injury. The Pioneers scored early and often beating the Jackets 7–0. The Jackets were held to two shots on goal, to the Pioneers 16. Kalea Hatlewick was the Jackets goaltender stopping nine of 16 shots she faced. The Jackets have a 3–6 season record, with a 0–1 record in the WIAC. The Jackets next match up is this weekend, against UW-Oshkosh with hopes of getting some of their players back from injury and illness.

The Jackets haven’t been doing a lot of scoring, however they are scoring enough to win games.

Brian Grand scored his first goal of the year to lead to the Jackets to a victorious WIAC opener. The Jackets then traveled to St. Paul to take on Bethel University. And again they walked away with a shutout. Ben Royce scored the loan goal, and Jacket’s goalie Matt Elder stopped the three shots he faced. The Jackets hold a 4–4-1 season record, and a 1–0 conference record. The Jackets next game is against UW-Oshkosh this weekend where they will continue conference play.

Despite coming off of their second tournament victory this year, the Jackets hoped to begin conference play on the winning side. However the Jackets fell to UW-River Falls, UW-Eau Claire, and UW-Oshkosh. In their WIAC opener at home against River Falls, the Jackets came up short losing three straight sets. The Jackets hoped to bounce back traveling to UW-Eau Claire. The Jackets put up a fight in the first set battling with Eau Claire for the game point, but came up short. The Jackets rebounded and took the second set, but lost the next two for an Eau Claire victory. The Jackets then traveled to UW-Oshkosh hoping to find their first WIAC victory. After winning the first set the Jackets seemed to have found a groove, but couldn’t keep the pedal down as they fell the next three sets. The Jackets hold a 10–6 season record, with a 0–3 WIAC record. The Jackets will next travel to Ashland to play Northland College.
