The Eutectic women’s soccer team took to the field on Saturday night, Aug. 23, for the first intercollegiate soccer game in St. Louis College of Pharmacy history. The Euts hosted sports powerhouse Central Methodist University at 5 p.m. at the Saint Louis University High School soccer stadium in front a supportive hometown crowd.

Under the blazing sun and sweltering heat, the Eutectic team had only two substitutes to provide relief, while the Eagles had enough subs to relieve their entire on-field team. The Eagles offense went on the attack from the get-go, scoring seven goals in the first period. The second half was much of the same as CMU netted another seven. Eutectic third-year goalkeeper Elizabeth McGiles had 10 saves, and second-year forward Christina Arackal had a shot on goal for the Euts. But in the end, the STLCOP team took a 14-0 loss.

Despite the loss, head coach Jamie Frisella remained positive about the game and the team, giving credit to fifth-year defender and captain Amber Crites. “Crites anchored the team with her toughness and leadership,” Frisella said after the game. “Our young Euts will turn heads this season with their passion and teamwork.”

Next up, the Euts will travel to Centralia, Ill., to play Kaskaskia College on Sunday, Aug. 31 at noon.
