Pilots Flight Report: Women's Soccer November 8 & 9

Providence Pilots women's soccer team went into the NCCAA North Region championship as the #2 seed and had to play two games in two days. Both the Semi-Final and Final went to overtime and fatigue played its tole on the Pilots. The Final versus host, Faith Baptist Bible college went all the way to double overtime, shootout where the Pilots fell five goals to four in a shootout. The outdoor season ended this weekend with a heartbreak loss but the future is bright as the Pilots are only graduating two seniors this year.

THE COACH: This was a heartbreaking loss for us there is no denying that. We have been the region champs for two years in a row now and I felt that we had a great shot at a national championship this year. The two games were tough for us, our team has been spoiled this year playing most of our games on turf fields or here at home on great grass fields. Our game is a possession game with good buildup but this weekend we were unable to do that well due to tough field conditions. Faith came out hard and wanted the win more than us, and we were unable to match their work ethic and physicality. They played a great game and in shoot-out's, its anyone's game. I hope this will not deter us as a team, but help grow us as a team. I believe our future is bright and if we stick together, we will be a force next season! Our focus now shifts to two things, Recruiting and Futsal. - Tory Walker

PLAYER’S VIEW: I would use two words to sum up how we played this past weekend, passion and tenacity. This season we had up and down games, but when came down to the finals the girls played with passion and fought for the win tenaciously. I am proud of how the girls played as a family. Even though we didn't get the result we wanted, we ended the season with a great final game. Despite the hard loss, the girls were able to find joy in it. I am excited to see how this team grows in the upcoming seasons! - Rebekah Stevenson
