TIFFIN, Ohio – After a double-overtime loss on Friday, the Heidelberg University women’s soccer team ran out of gas in a 4-0 loss to Kalamazoo on Saturday.
Kalamazoo (1-1) opened scoring with a goal 3:57 in to the game. Jordan Meeth took a cross form Madeline Chilcote and beat goalkeeper Molly Schriber (Sidney) to the far post.
The Hornets added to their lead just before halftime. Suzanne Miller headed in a Jordan Lewis cross.
After halftime, Kalamazoo scored quickly to push the advantage to 3-0. They would close the scoring at the 86:37 mark.
Schriber finished with five saves in 59 minutes. Sophomore Julie Cross notched two saves in 31 minutes.
Freshman Lindsey Marcum and senior Bethany Mattern each had a shot on goal for Heidelberg (0-2).
“We battled through tired legs and nagging injuries this weekend,” said eight-year head coach Nick Spell. “This weekend’s games allowed us to see the things that were working well and exposed some areas that will need to be developed.”
Spell’s team will return to the pitch on Friday at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland.
