DCWS Drops Final Game

(Defiance, OH). The Defiance College Women’s Soccer team played in their final regular season game Saturday, October 28th as they took on the first place Mount St. Joe Lions, who had a record of 16-3, and 7-2 in conference.

This was also the Women’s Senior Night, where they had the opportunity to celebrate three seniors who put in countless hours into leaving the program better than they found it. These seniors were Kassie Memmer, Megan Weasley, and Lea McCoy. Thank you ladies for all the hard work!

The first half did not go as the Jackets had planned. The Lions were able to run in and out of the defense, putting 4 out of 22 shots on frame into the back of the net. These happened in the 12th, 25th, 41st, and 44th minutes. The Jackets went into the half trailing 4-0.

The second half was more in favor of the Jackets, as they were able to squelch Mount St. Joseph’s offense, and put together something of their own. This came in the 70th minute, when senior Kassie Memmer, playing in her last collegiate soccer game, lined up for a free kick. She was able to put it over a jumping keeper, adding to her already incredible career here at Defiance. This was not enough, as the Jackets fell to the Lions 4-1.

After the game, we caught up with Kassie Memmer, and she had this to say about the game, “ We didn’t get the result we wanted from this game, but never stopped playing and battled with MSJ until the last whistle. We were able to put one in the back of the net and that was a good note to end the season.”

Memmer also wanted to leave her teammates with this, “I’m very thankful for this season, but more so for the girls I got to spend my last season playing with. Throughout the course of the season we grew a lot and I know the future of the program will be better because of the group of girls. They have a lot to look forward to and I am very excited for them!”
