WashU played with authority over the ball and an aggressive offense for most of the game.
Both teams won a game this weekend, with the men’s team beating North Park and the women’s defeating Carthage after a draw against Loras.
The men captured two shutout victories while the women beat Fontbonne University for their first victory under interim head coach Stephanie Gabbert.
He departs the University as the winningest women’s soccer coach in its history and now heads for the head coach position at Grand Valley State University after leading the Bears to 12 consecutive NCAA playoff appearances, multiple trips to the finals and the 2016 national championship.
“It was a great battle, a heck of a fight with Pomona,” head coach Jim Conlon said as he held back tears. “The ball just didn’t bounce our way today.”
Seeing freshman Katie Stender-Moore in goal was a testament to the Bears’ early success in their NCAA tournament first round match against Maryville College, a sign of how Wash. U. had coasted through the game to an overpowering victory, 4-0. After beating Maryville, the Bears kept fighting for more on Sunday, beating Adrian College, 2-0, to advance to the Sweet 16.
After a long and exciting season, it’s nearly playoff time for the Washington University women’s soccer team. Before finding out who they will be facing in the postseason, the Bears rounded out their regular season this past Saturday in the Windy City.
The Washington University women’s soccer team took care of business last weekend when it clinched the University Athletic Association Title. But the Bears’ regular season still has one game left on the schedule: a battle at the University of Chicago on Saturday.
The Washington University women’s soccer team punched its ticket to the postseason this weekend, beating Carnegie Mellon University, 1-0, and Case Western Reserve University, 2-1, to clinch its fifth straight University Athletic Association title.
In the last 20 minutes of both games that the Washington University women’s soccer team played this weekend, the Bears found themselves level on the scoreboard against a conference opponent. In both games, the Bears managed to convert late chances into game-winning goals, securing a 2-1 victory over No. 21 New York University on Friday and a 1-0 win over Brandeis University on Sunday.
