EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE women's soccer downed IUPUI in its final exhibition match of the season 3-1. After a scoreless first half, the Cougars scored three straight to take down the Jaguars.
Head Coach Derek Burton was pleased with his team's overall play.
"We definitely liked the way we played in the second half. We are trying to find a good combination of players to start out the game," Burton said. "We kept a high level of play even with numerous subs going in."
The Cougars shot 10 times, with seven of the shots on goal.
"We have to be better coming out of the gate," said Hoefert. "It always feels good when your team can score goals, and its special scoring the first goal of the preseason. We are all very excited to start the regular season next week."
The Cougars have a tough start to the regular season when they will face off against Clemson at the Hoosier Challenge Cup in Bloomington, Indiana, next Friday at 3:30 pm CT.
