Mid-season Report: Women’s soccer 2018

The Belmont women’s soccer team is currently sitting at .500 with a record of 5-5-2 with four conference matches left in the season.

The season got off to a rough start with three tough losses to Lipscomb, Middle Tennessee and Western Carolina.

After that, the Bruins rallied to go without a loss for the next six games, which included four wins and two ties.

This included a well-fought 1-0 win against Morehead State on Sept. 21, which made coach Heather Henson the winningest coach in Belmont women’s soccer history. The lone goal in the match was scored by sophomore Julie Garst, and goalie Lily Herman was also instrumental to the victory.

Henson, who is currently in her eighth season at Belmont, broke the previous record when she earned her 53rd career win at Belmont against Morehead State.

“It is an honor and quite honestly I don’t see it as an individual award. I have some unbelievable alumni that I had the privilege of being able to coach and an amazing coaching staff,” said Henson.

The Bruins broke their streak with losses against SIU Edwardsville and Tennessee Tech, but they rallied to beat Jacksonville State on Friday, bringing the team’s overall record to 5-5-2.

The team will finish off the regular season with four conference games, including tough matchups against University of Tennessee Martin and Murray State, who are ranked first and second in the conference respectively.

On Sunday, the women will take on Eastern Kentucky at E.S. Rose Park at 2 p.m..
