All we're going to say is that Eastern women's soccer team is doing some serious work right now.
12-0-1?! Really? Believe us, even we need to pinch ourselves to believe that it's real.
This past weekend, a hard-fought 1-0 decision over Southern Maine continued our unbeaten LEC streak on a beautiful Maine day. And again on Wednesday, while playing at #8 New England-ranked Amherst College, we avenged last year's NCAA tournament knockout on the same grass field with a 2-1 victory against an always hard opponent in the Lord Jeffs. The team is playing very well together and we continue to weather the storms of our difficult schedule.
But with five regular season games left, we need some serious drive and motivation to go into playoffs with our heads still held high. The target on our backs just got that much bigger.
We have a home game against RIC this weekend, and since everyone is going to be gunning for us here on out, we hope to report back with still more great news.
Thanks for the support,
Steph and Lauren
