  • The Lady Beavers traveled to play 12th ranked Northern Oklahoma College last Friday, resulting in a 4-0 shutout loss for the Lady Beavers.
    The match marked the first game of the season for the Lady Beavers and also their first loss.
    "The Beavers came out very flat and were punished for it by the Northern Oklahoma Strikers," said Jerrid Schicke, Women's Soccer Coach.
    The Goal Keeping duo of Donna Nickolay and Meridith Mckee collaborated for 8 saves in 12 shots, as Nickolay saved three shots and Mckee stopped 5.
    The Lady Beavers travelled to Kansas City on Tuesday with hopes of getting the team, and their record, back on track.
    The Lady Beavers came out swinging and scored their first goal in the opening minutes of the game.
    The Lady Beavers kept on scoring, led by Holly Herrod, who recorded her first career hat trick.
    Lady Beavers goalies also held their ground, recording the Lady Beavers' first shut out of the season, 3-0 Lady Beavers over KCKCC.
    ""This is the kind of performance I expect from the girls. It was great watching them realize and perform to their potential," said Schicke. "A great win for the team, and an amazing individual performance by Holly."
    The women's soccer team next faced Western Nebraska Community College on Saturday, Sept. 1.
    The Lady Beavers were back in action Saturday to face non-conference opponent Western Nebraska Community College in Great Bend, KS.
    As the temperature on the turf spiked to over 117 degrees, the Beavers battled in a very tight, competitive match.
    The Cougars struck first, connecting a cross to the back post in the 23rd minute, a goal that consequently sidelined GK Donna Nickolay for the remainder of the contest.
    The Beavers refused to accept potential defeat as they equalized shortly before halftime.
    Makenzie Weishaar struck the post on a brilliant shot from over 30 yards out. Holly Harrod was able to corral the rebound and slam it into the back of the net.
    The second half was full of excitement as the Beaver defense, led by Jasmine Torrente and Madollin Mosteller, held strong only allowing three shots on goal.
    "Unfortunately, a controversial penalty kick was awarded in the final minute of play," said Jerrid Schicke, Head Women's Soccer Coach. The resulting strike lifted the Cougars past the Beavers for the final 2-1 score.
    "The girls were brilliant today! I am very happy with the effort given today. Regardless of the result, this is the kind of football we need to be playing as we approach our home opener on Tuesday," said Schicke.
    With a record of 1-2, the Lady Beavers held their home opener Tuesday against Northwest Tech.
    Unfortunately, the Lady Beavers were shut out 2-0 by the Lady Mavericks. The setback dropped PCC's mark to 1-3 on the young season.
