PIKEVILLE, Ky. (Women's Soccer) – The Shawnee State women's soccer program got a much-needed confidence boost on Saturday afternoon as two goals by Leslie Marsh (JR/Springboro, Ohio) and Maddie Woodard (SO/Camden, Ohio) in the second half broke a 1-1 deadlock and allowed the Bears (4-2-1, 1-1 MSC) to cruise to their first Mid-South Conference victory of the season against the University of Pikeville at the Bob Amos Complex in Pikeville.
Even though Pikeville (1-7, 0-2 MSC) outshot Shawnee State by a 12-7 tally in shots, SSU was able to take advantage of the opportunities that were there in front of the net, as 83 percent of Shawnee State's shots – six, to be exact – came on goal, whereas UPike put 58 percent of their shots on goal by comparison.
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Women's Soccer) – Jenny Campbell (SO/Chillicothe, Ohio) found Schuyler Jones (SR/Ramnicu Valcea, Romania) with less than a second left in the opening period, leading to a beautiful redirection off the head of Jones and the first score of the contest, and Campbell added a goal of her own as the Shawnee State women's soccer team defeated Cincinnati Christian University, 2-0, in a nonconference bout on Wednesday at Shawnee Turf.
"It's nice to get back on track," head coach Rob Appell said. "We were able to clean up a couple of things from this past weekend. We got two very timely goals in this one. The first one at the end of the half really gave us the momentum heading into the break"
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Women's Soccer) – The Shawnee State women's soccer team obtained a goal apiece from Jenny Campbell (SO/Chillicothe, Ohio) and Schuyler Jones (SR/Ramnicu Valcea, Romania) but were not able to contain the strong St. Catharine offense as the Patriots followed up a five-goal victory over Cincinnati Christian University with a 4-2 victory over the Bears in the Mid-South Conference opener for both teams at the Shawnee Turf on Saturday afternoon.
However, for Shawnee State University Women's Soccer Head Coach Rob Appell, the honoring of a cause that was special to him was more important than a win or loss could ever bring to the table.
CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (Women's Soccer) – A 36th minute goal from Kyla Toles (FR/Williamsburg, Ohio) – the second of her first-year campaign – proved the game-winner, as Maddie Woodard (SO/Camden, Ohio) scored one and assisted two more en route to a 4-1 Shawnee State victory over previously unbeaten Ohio Christian University on Tuesday afternoon.
It would take just over 11 minutes for Shawnee State (2-1-1) to get the scoring underway, as the Bears worked a corner kick with 33 minutes remaining in the first frame. Jenny Campbell (SO/Chillicothe, Ohio) sent the corner to the opposite post and found the feet of Schuyler Jones (SR/Ramnicu Valcea, Romania), who finished with a one-touch shot on frame to hand the visiting squad a 1-0 advantage.
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Men's Soccer) – The Shawnee State University women's soccer team obtained a late second-half goal from Leslie Marsh (JR/Springboro, Ohio) off of a pass from Kyla Toles (FR/Williamsburg, Ohio) to cut a sizeable Union lead down to a 3-1 tally, but the Bulldogs used two late goals from Bobie Bramledge and Jessica Austin to put the Bears away for good as Shawnee State fell to Union (Ky.) by a 5-1 count at the Shawnee Turf on Saturday afternoon.
In the contest, the Bears (1-1-1) and the Bulldogs (3-1) were nearly even on shots, with Union attempting 11 to Shawnee State's eight. However, the Bears could only muster two shots on goal, while the Bulldogs put eight shots toward the net.
