On Sept. 11, the Eastern Michigan University women’s soccer team traveled to Lexington, KY to play a match against the University of Kentucky. The final score resulted in a 5-1 loss for the Eagles.
This game was the final non-conference game for EMU. The Wildcats scored four times in the second half to take the win at the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex. Freshman Lily Spotak scored the lone goal for the Eagles, which was the first goal scored on Kentucky this season and her very own first collegiate goal.
Freshman Kevser Guendogdu entered the game as a substitute for goalie and made her first save of her collegiate career.
Freshman Meghan Oliver and sophomore Tess Williams both made their collegiate debuts in the second half of the game.
This was the first time the Eagles and Wildcats met to play against each other in program history.
With the non-conference slate coming to a close, EMU now has a record of 1-4-2.
Next up, the Eagles will face Central Michigan University on Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. This match will also be the first game played on EMU campus at Scicluna Field this season with the new artificial turf installation.
