Clarksville, Ark.-The Hardin-Simmons University women's soccer team blanked the University of the Ozarks 6-0 in American Southwest Conference action on Saturday afternoon.
“We had a tough weekend,” said head coach Justin Neese. “We played three good halves of soccer. The energy was there and the motivation was there, but we just weren’t able to get any goals. We need to focus on playing well this weekend and forget the scores from these matches.” It was the second time in as many days the Lady Eagles were shutout. The Lady Eagles drop to 5-6-2 overall and 2-5-0 in ASC play. “We’ve had some success because we have better players this season,” said Neese. “The girls we’re really motivated at the beginning of the year and that helped get through some of our tough early opponents. Our freshmen have done extremely well and I think they will only get better as time goes on.” Ozarks will host Mary Hardin-Baylor on October 13 and Howard Payne on October 14.
