The Women’s Soccer Club’s competitive season is in the fall. They play in a five team league, competing against Wayne State University, University of Michigan- Dearborn, University of Michigan- Flint, and Washtenaw Community College, with each team playing each other twice in a season. At the end of a season, the top four teams face off against one another in a tournament.
This season, the club “finished in 1st place this season” says Jessica Warminski, “with a record of 6 wins and 2 ties, scoring 33 goals and only allowing 4 goals”.
This qualified the team to compete in the top four tournament where they defeated #4 Washtenaw Community College 2-0. Then they played Wayne State, the Women’s Soccer Club’s “toughest opponent”. The end score was 0-0, resulting in the winner determined by penalty shootout. After the shootout, it was decided that Oakland University was the season winner with the score of 3 to 1.
In addition to winning the season title for their division, the Women’s Soccer Club also raised money in October for breast cancer awareness. They did this by turning one of their home matches into a fundraiser and then donated the funds to breast cancer research and awareness.
