It’s been a year of “firsts” for the Eutectic women’s soccer team, but on Tuesday, Oct. 14, the team claimed its second win of the season over Stephens College, 4-1. First-year Christina Arackal started things off forty minutes into the game with a goal assisted by first-year Morgan Geissler. With a 1-0 lead after the half, the Eutectics went on the attack. First-year Jordyn Norde scored back-to-back solo goals at five and fifteen minutes into the second half. Two minutes after Norde’s second goal, the Stephens Stars scored their first and only goal of the game. Third-year Amber Laurent kicked in the final goal for the Eutectics with eight minutes left in the game and an assist from Arackal. The Eutectic defense kept the Stars to three shots on goal, so third-year goalkeeper Melissa Maixner had two saves for the Euts.

While not participating in a full conference schedule this year, the win over the AMC member school was a confidence booster for the Eutectics. The Euts were scheduled to play three AMC teams in a row last week, but the rainy weather forced the trip to Hannibal-LaGrange College on Thursday to be postponed. The third conference team on the docket was at Harris-Stowe State University on Saturday, Oct. 18. Norde answered the Hornets’ first goal at the 10 minute mark by finding the net at 23:30. The Hornets would convert another free kick before the first half was over, making it 2-1 at the half. No points would be added to the scoreboard in the second half as the teams battled it out on the midfield, and only four shots were taken, collectively. The Hornets claimed the win, 2-1. 

The Eutectics are now 2-8 on the season with only one game left. The original final game of the seaso was at home against Lincoln Christian University on Saturday. But, due to injuries that caused problems with roster numbers on the Red Lion team, that game has been canceled. Instead, that final game of this historic season will be the rescheduled game at Hannibal-LaGrange on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 1:00 p.m.
