of 2015-16 season

By Maria Ivanov

Cleveland State University women’s soccer team played a challenging game on Tuesday, Sept. 1. The Vikings played against the Akron Zips at the First Energy Stadium Cub Cadet Field at 7:00 p.m.

Jamie Daniels is Cleveland State’s goalie and she played an aggressive first half, blocking two corner kicks from the opposing team.

Daniels managed to block all the shots taken by Akron, and at the end of the first half the score was set at zero to zero.

The game was well attended with Akron students rooting on their team and saying vulgar things such as, “you suck” when Daniels would kick the ball back into play.

Despite these distractions, the team faced they continued to play a competitive match.

With 16 minutes remaining in the second half Cleveland State had a break away attempting a goal.
Akron’s goalie saved it, but it escaped her hands and Cleveland State made another attempt, but the ball hits the cross bar.

After one of Akron’s players knocked a Cleveland State player in attempt to make a goal, the referee gave Cleveland State a penalty kick. Cleveland State’s first goal of the match was made by Allie Sieradzki’s successful penalty kick.

Throughout the second half Akron played an aggressive 45 minutes and was able to score four goals on Daniels.

Daniels’ teammate, Kaila Sargema was successful in scoring another goal with three minutes remaining in the second half.

Head Coach Sonia Curvelo was very pleased with the way the team played their first match of the season.
“When you’re looking at wins or loses it is always an opportunity to learn and grow from it,” Curvelo said.

The final score in the match was Cleveland State 2, Akron Zips 4.

The Vikings will play upcoming matches on September 8 and 26.
