UWS Women’s Soccer look to end losing streak
As October began the Jackets looked to start fresh and start the month on the winning note with three home games. They began that fresh start hosting Northland College. Katelyn Adams and Miranda Garrelts were able to find the back of the net, but Northland was able to convert as well. The game resulted in a 2–2 tie after the second overtime. Kalea Hatlewick played all 110 minutes in goal and stopped six of the eight shots.
The Jackets then hosted UW-Stout hoping to find their first win in October. However the Blue Devils were too much to handle. UW-Stout put 19 shots on Alexandra Paige and scored on seven of the shots. The Jackets only managed to record three shots on goal. Nichole Casler was the only Jacket to score in the 7–1 loss.
After a tie and a loss the Jackets hoped to finally find a victory in the month of October when they hosted UW-River Falls. The Jackets struggled getting shots on net finishing with only one, which went past the River Falls goaltender. Chelsea Cossin tallied her third goal of the season. Kalea Hatlewick faced 14 shots, stopping 11 of them. The Jackets will now travel to Stevens Point looking for their first win in October.
