Eastern University’s Women’s Soccer team traveled to Annville where they faced Lebanon Valley College. A valiant effort by all but ultimately fell to the Dutchmen 3-1. Eastern University came home after that and faced the number one team in the country, the Messiah Falcons. Eastern’s freshman goalkeeper making her collegiate debut, Leah Lozzi, made a valiant effort. The other goalkeepers were injured at the time ,so it was up to her, and she impressively kept the Falcons from scoring in the first half. However, the talent was too great as the Eagles fell 4-0 to the number one team in the nation. Next up were the Ospreys of Stockton University, where EU was shut out once again 3-0.
Despite the highs and the lows, some players are making their presence felt among their teammates. Junior forward Emily Cole is one example as she leads the team in scoring with 18 points scored. Cole, along with sophomores Caroline Lozzi and Alex Imperatore lead the team in minutes played. Sophomore midfielder Courtney Davis leads the team in assists.
The Eastern University Women’s Soccer team looks to continue to improve when they start a stretch of conference games starting with Misericordia University on October 10th, a part of the homecoming festivities at Eastern’s Olsen Field. Delaware Valley University will be their next opponent as the Eagles travel to Doylestown on October 13th, followed by a home game against Desales University October 17th. On October 21st and 24th they hit the road to Wilkes-Barre where they will face Wilkes University and Kings College in conference play. Finally after a non-conference game against Ursinus College, the Eagles will face FDU-Florham at home on Halloween to wrap up the regular season.
