The HPU women’s soccer team took on one of their toughest obstacles yet: playing three games in five days and traveling more than 1,100 miles through three states.

The HPU women’s soccer team struggled in their first road game on the mainland, falling to Dixie State College 5-0, on Oct. 10. The Lady Sea Warriors (1-3) had trouble containing Dixie State attacker Mikala Wilkes, who scored the first four goals for the Lady Rebels (3-1-1). Robyn Wall scored the fifth goal for the Lady Rebels in the 82nd minute. HPU goalkeeper Veronica Ellman saved five shots out of 22 attempts.

The young team, which consists of 13 freshmen, three sophomores, and one junior, was forced to shake off the loss because in two days they would face their next opponent, Grand Canyon University.

The Antelopes of GCU (3-3-1) came out strong offensively, scoring in the sixth minute of the game. GCU took 26 shots on goal throughout the game, compared to HPU’s three. GCU scored again in the 33rd minute to seal the game. Ellman recorded 11 saves in the 2-0 loss.

On Oct. 14, the Lady Sea Warriors traveled to Belmont, Calif. to take on Notre Dame de Namur University (3-4). The Argos found the net twice in the first half; the first in the sixth minute, off a rebound by Lyndsey Schiffman and the second goal by Amy Armijo. The Lady Sea Warriors fought back in the second half to score their first goal of the road trip. HPU’s Ely Sarrett-Pilgrim scored on a breakaway from a pass by Jamie Hirai, giving the Lady Sea Warriors hopes of a comeback. However, the Argos crushed those dreams, scoring two more goals to make the final score 4-1.
