Women's Soccer Faces William Woods, Lewis

September 22, 2003

         SIUE will get a break from Great Lakes Valley Conference play when it travels to William Woods for a Wednesday non-conference match up.
         William Woods, an NAIA program in Fulton, Mo., enters Wednesday's game with a 2-4 record. "They have some big scorers," Coach Lynda Bowers said. "Other than that, we do not know much about them, so we'll go into the game just like it's any other game and see what happens."
         SIUE, 6-1 overall and 1-1 in the GLVC, will then face Lewis on Friday in its GLVC home opener. Game time is 5:30 p.m. at Korte Stadium.
         "We are looking forward to the game because it is our next home game and we want to show what we're made of," Bowers said. "We are just hungry for victories and look forward to all conference games."
         After suffering a double-overtime loss at Quincy on Friday, SIUE bounced back and won a 2-1 decision Sunday at Missouri-St. Louis.
         "We just didn't adapt to Quincy's defense," Bowers said. "Our effort was there, they just caught us in the last minutes of the second overtime."
         With its loss, the Cougars fell to No. 2 in the Great Lakes region.
         Sarah Landt (Carbondale) and Ann Crawford (St. Louis) each scored to lift SIUE against Missouri-St. Louis.
         "Ann Crawford was tenacious on goal and Landt, who was playing the right-wing position for the first time, came through with the game-winner."
