PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Men's Soccer) – The Shawnee State men's soccer program put six individuals on the Mid-South Conference's All-Academic Team, as announced on Tuesday by conference officials. Honors were awarded to each student-athlete of sophomore status who obtained a grade-point-average of at least 3.25 or better.
Mauricio Solis (JR/San Jose, Costa Rica) and Chris Wiget (SR/Piketon, Ohio) would lead the way for Shawnee State in the department, as Solis recorded a 3.74 GPA while majoring as a junior in Computer Engineering Technology. Wiget, who makes the Academic All-MSC list in every season eligible with this latest honor, improved on his 3.52 mark last year with a 3.58 over the past season as a senior Athletic Training major.
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Men's Soccer) – The Shawnee State men's soccer program sent out its seven seniors in the right way as Nick Dowdell (SR/New London, Ohio), Martyn Sayer (JR/Liverpool, England), Mauricio Solis (JR/San Jose, Costa Rica) and Matt Williams (FR/West Salem, Ohio) each added a goal and the Bears kept a strong Kentucky Christian attack from painting the scoreboard as Shawnee State defeated the Knights 4-0 on Senior Day at the Shawnee Turf on Tuesday evening.
On the afternoon, the Bears dominated the overall pace of the game, as Shawnee State (6-12) recorded 26 shots, including 16 on goal, compared to Kentucky Christian's (12-7-1) eight and four on goal.
CUMBERLANDS, Ky. (Women's Soccer) – The Shawnee State women's and men's soccer programs combined for just 10 shots – five apiece – against Cumberlands (Ky.) as both soccer programs fell by scores of 3-0 and 4-0, respectively, in two Mid-South Conference matchups on Saturday afternoon.
In the women's contest, the Patriots wouldn't take long to strike as Jody Lemaster scored on an assist from Taylor Lawson with 52 seconds gone in the contest to grab an early 1-0 lead.
HUNTINGTON, W. Va. (Men's Soccer) – For over 50 minutes, the Shawnee State University men's soccer program went toe-to-toe with an NCAA Division I foe as the Bears battled the Marshall Thundering Herd to a 0-0 tie for the first 52 minutes of a 90-minute bout.
Three goals by Marshall (5-8-1) in a six-minute span, however, were enough to do Shawnee State (5-11) in as another great effort by the Bears fell shy in a 3-0 loss to the Thundering Herd on Tuesday evening at the Veterans Memorial Soccer Complex in Huntington, W. Va.
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Men's Soccer) – For the second straight weekend, the Shawnee State men's soccer program gave a nationally ranked conference foe all it could handle.
However, despite a Caspar Nolte (FR/Germantown, Ohio) goal off of a feed from Martyn Sayer (JR/Liverpool, England) that gave the Bears a 1-0 lead for a good portion of the contest, the Cumberland (Tenn.) Bulldogs were able to use two Elliot Goodwin goals to pull out a 2-1 victory over Shawnee State on Saturday afternoon at the Shawnee Turf.
