On Friday, Oct. 12, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Rangers men’s soccer team squared off against the University of Illinois-Springfield. The Rangers started off the game like bats out of hell. They swarmed around the goal, and there was nothing the UIS defense could do about it. UW- Parkside had two outstanding corner kicks within the first ten minutes. Unfortunately, neither attempt could be converted with a header.
On Friday, Oct. 12, the lady Rangers soccer team took on University of Illinois-Springfield. The opening whistle blew to start the game. Before I could even bat an eye, the lady Rangers scored the first goal of the game. Madison Pickett bombed a lead pass down field to Ashley Meyer, who shielded off a defender with her body to receive the pass cleanly. Ashley then floated the ball ever so perfectly over the UIS goalkeeper’s head into the net, while still being harassed by the pesky UIS defender who was hanging around like a gnat.
