Loras Takes Two in Conference Soccer Finale at Central

The Central men’s and women’s soccer teams did not end the season as they would have hoped, losing to Loras in Pella yesterday afternoon. The women fell 4 – 1, only getting three shots on goal to the DuHawks’ 13. Central scored their only goal off the foot of Julie Wunder on a nice cross from Alayna Bailey to make it 3 – 1 in favor of Loras. The DuHawks’ men edged the Dutch 2 – 1 in their contest. Loras led 1 – 0 early in the first half, until Mark Hentschel scored with an assist from Aleksandar Glavas to tie it up at the half. Loras would score a goal about 15 minutes into the second half to hang onto win. The Dutch women fall to 12 – 5 – 2 overall and finish 3 – 3 – 1 in Iowa Conference play, and the men end their regular season 9 – 8 – 1 and 2 – 5 in the league. Each squad will wait to see who they play during the Iowa Conference tournament which starts this Friday.
