UIS notes: Women's soccer squad hopes to turn close calls into victories

The University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars women’s soccer team is hoping to turn a string of close losses into victories.

The Stars have lost four straight matches by a single goal, which includes a 4-3 defeat last Friday to Missouri-St. Louis and 2-1 overtime loss to Maryville on Sunday.

“After the game Friday, I hadn’t seen a team that excited,” UIS women’s soccer coach Pete Kowall said. “They certainly worked hard and good enough to score some goals.

“We have gotten better. In both games, we had chances to score. We haven’t quite gotten over the hump.”

The team was featured along with information on the men's soccer team, volleyball team, and the new UIS athletics website in a September 23, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
