The Seawolves walked away with a 3-0 victory on Oct. 10 making this the third game in a row that the Coyotes have lost.
Seawolves player McKenzie Maher scored the first goal, followed by Lauren Curtin’s penalty kick goal minutes later.
A penalty kick occurs after a foul has been made, forcing the rest of the players to stay away without interfering.
While the Coyote goalkeeper, Emily Whyte had two saves, in the end that didn’t prove to be enough.
The Seawolve’s Alex Sifuentes scored the last goal of the game.
The Coyotes didn’t let their third loss in a row hold them down for long, and came back even stronger as they went up against the Humboldt State Lumberjacks.
A group of 202 spectators gathered in Arcata to see the Coyotes claim a win over the Lumberjacks, with a score of 1-0.
“On Sunday, our win came from just coming together and playing like a team, it just came down to hard work,” said goalkeeper Monique Boe.
The team worked harder to perfect their skills after their previous game and played like a better and stronger team.
The winning goal was scored by Sophomore Kiana Quarles, with an assist from teammate Jillian Seminara.
Seminara passed the ball to Quarles from the midfield line, who was then able to successfully control the ball all the way into the net.
The win didn’t come easy as both teams battled it out on the field with.
While the team has a rigorous training schedule, with only one day off, it’s this type of discipline that is sure to make the team rack up goals as the season continues.
Juggling soccer, school and their social life can be a tough task but its their love and commitment to the sport that seems to get them through it.
“It’s tough, but with a good group of girls it’s fun and we have the coaching and staffing we need to back us up,” said Boe.
The players have an obvious appreciation for each other, and support each other on and off the field like one big family.
The coach expects his players to give it their all on the field and they deliver exactly that.
“At the end of the day we are a family and we work hard,” said Boe.
The teams sense of comradery and “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” type of attitude is what will keep the women’s soccer team a force to be reckoned with.
Students can come out and support the Coyotes during their next home game on Oct. 24, as face go against California State University, Monterey Bay.
