Central women’s soccer team falls to Grand View

Women's soccer | Sept. 25, 2012

PELLA —Although the Central College women’s soccer squad dropped a game against Grand View Tuesday night, coach Mike Kobylinksi applauded its effort on the field.

“Even though we beat Grand View (4-5-1) last year, tonight’s 1-0 score was a fair result,” he said. “Grand View’s coach, Ventsi Stoimirov, does a great job of coaching that group.”  

Goalkeeper Steph Hasken (senior, Davenport, West HS) tallied six saves on the night. Midfielder Emily Saville (sophomore, Cedar Rapids, Linn-Mar HS) and defender Kelsey Schippers (junior, Pella) had one shot each. The Dutch (8-3) were outshot 13-2.

“Steph kept us in the game with some really nice saves,” Kobylinski said. “And our backs, Annie Weaver (freshman, Boone) and Schippers did a great job. I thought the whole team did well.

“We battled and fought and came out on the losing end, but sometimes as a coach you have to be okay with that because you know you did everything you could do.”

The Dutch face off with the University of Dubuque (2-5-1 overall, 0-1, conference) on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the A.N. Kuyper Athletics Complex soccer field. Last year, Central tied Dubuque 2-2 in double overtime.

“We are going to be ready to play Dubuque,” Kobylinski said. “We are ready to give them all they can handle.”
