Women's Soccer: A Comeback for the Ages

By Stephanie Norell and Lauren Hickey


Steph and Lauren reporting in about our game this past weekend!

We think there's only one word to describe the game...COMEBACK! Holy moley, we STILL can't believe we came back from a two-goal deficit to win it against our arch rivals, Keene State.

For those of you who weren't there, (not sure what else there is to do at 1 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon), you missed one heck of a game. Down 1-0 at halftime, we came out determined to avenge that score! Unfortunately, they scored again. Now, normally a team would pack it in and say "screw it, we lost anyway." But not THIS team! In the area of 20 minutes or so, we scored three (count em, THREE!) goals. For those uninformed soccer fans, that is practically unheard of! Not to mention, difficult. Boom, boom, boom. The goals were in the onion basket in a seemingly non-chalant fashion. For lack of a better phrase, it was nuts!!

Not that the target on our backs wasn't big before, but it certainly is now. And we added a lot more fuel to the already burning fire Keene has simmering for us. A loss like that sticks with a team for the entire season. We can't wait to do it again to them :)

Now onto Salem State with a 7-0-1 record WHATTTT. Hope to report back with another W, gotta keep it going!
