KISSIMMEE, FL. - The Emmanuel College Women's Soccer Team wrapped up their season on Tuesday with a final game against Trinity International University.
In their second match of the NCCAA National Tournament, the ladies fell short by 1 goal to their opponent TIU. The ladies started off strong with the first goal of the game coming from Senior Stephanie Lamm (#2) just 1:28 into the game. Trinity International attempted 4 shots on goal, but Goal Keeper Marina Eisenhut (#1) saved all four shots allowing the Lions to cruise into half time leading 1-0.
When Emmanuel returned to the field, they were quickly met with a newly reenergized TIU. The Trojans attacked early on and had their first goal of the night just under 4 minutes into the 2nd period. This would tie up the score at 1-1. Just three minutes later, TIU struck again, with another goal to take the lead 2-1. The Lions continued to fight with 3 more shots on goal from Stephanie Lamm and Lindsay Lee (#14), but they were unable to score, giving the victory to Trinity International.
Although the Lions lost the match, they had the most successful season in the history of the Women's Soccer program. This marked the first year the ladies won the NCCAA Regional Championship and advanced to the NCCAA National Tournament. The ladies finished with an overall record of 10-9-1.
Congratulations to the Women's Soccer Team and Head Coach Nathan Harrell and Assistant Coach Bess Harrell on their accomplishments!
