A lot of things happened in women’s sports this week, both on the field and the court, so let’s recap.

Women’s Soccer played Manchester on Wednesday, in the rain, I might add and put up a good fight against the Spartans. Both teams remained scoreless in the first half of the game, but early in the second half, #14 Lexi Coward scored a goal and put the Jackets in the lead. However, the lead didn’t last long because Manchester scored a few minutes later on a penalty kick to tie the score. Manchester scored again, which put the Spartans in the lead. Manchester maintained the lead for the rest of the game, resulting in a  2-1 loss for the Jackets. DC ended the game with six shots on goal and an impressive 23 saves.

On Saturday, the Jackets battled hard against a very quick Hanover team. The Panthers scored seven times in the first half of the game, putting them in a 7-0 lead.
