The Womenâ€™s Soccer team lost their fifth straight game against Central Missouri
State in Warrensburg, but look forward to some easier opponents and much needed victories. The Griffons ended up losing 5-0 to CMSU. The Griffons record is now 1-7-2.
The Griffons were only down 1-0 at halftime, but fresh legs proved to be the problem in the second half as the UCM, a team that was nationally ranked earlier in the season, had plenty of players to substitute in when needed.
â€œThey are a good team,â€ Jeff Hansen, head coach, said.
â€œOur girls fought hard, we just donâ€™t have a lot of subs. They had a lot of depth,â€ Hansen said.
This is another road loss for the Griffons, who have yet to get a road victory.
â€œItâ€™s hard to get road wins in this conference,â€ Hansen said.
At home they are 1-2-1. Their two home losses were only by one goal each. The good news is that the Griffons last five out of eight games will be home games. Although the Griffons have been on a losing slide, they have been improving throughout the season. Hansen said his team has improved tremendously since their first three-preseason scrimmages.
â€œWe are in the tough part of our schedule,â€ Hansen said. â€œWeâ€™re playing regionally ranked teams. These road games are the toughest part.â€
The team looks to bounce back and pick up some needed wins in the next few games.
â€œWe have winnable games coming up,â€ Hansen said. â€œLast week we kind of went through the motions but now we are having good effort.â€
This effort will be needed as the Griffons face Northwest Missouri State at 7:00
p.m. Wednesday at Spratt Stadium.
