The women’s soccer team had their final games of the season against conference opponents VCU on Oct. 31, and George Washington on Nov. 2, and gave tribute to the seniors and their families during the final home contest of the season.

Unfortunately, the Billikens were unable to grab a victory, and concluded the regular season with a record of 8-10 and 3-5 in the Atlantic 10 conference. Their record was good enough for ninth place in the conference, and the team missed out on the post-season A-10 Conference Championship tournament by one seed.

VCU travelled to Robert R. Herrmann stadium for the Halloween match. The Rams’ Kailyn Slade took an assist from Maren Johansen (her third assist of the season) to score from 10 yards out at 25:38.

The second half brought increased pressure and a barrage of shots from the Billikens. Despite having a 14-6 and 5-2 lead in corner kicks, the team was shut out by VCU goalkeeper Emma Kruse.

Sophomore forward Cristina Rodriguez had a career high of seven total shots, three on goal. Her seven shots tied the Saint Louis season high.

For the final conference game on Sunday, Nov. 2 the team celebrated its senior players including: defender Maddy Bush, midfielder Lindsay Elking, defender Julia Merlo, defender Andrea Strebler, and defender Mary Wright.  Managers Meagan Schneider and Abbey Stock were honored as well.

The match provided a final chance for the team to win on their home field for the season, but George Washington’s Mackenzie Cowley scored early in the game to take and maintain the lead.

Cowley scored at 15:58 off of a pass from Alex Brothers to notch her seventh goal of the season. GW goalkeeper Miranda Horn made six saves to bring the final score of 1-0.

Saint Louis goalkeeper Hanna Benben made three saves, while Tori Marshall also added four shots.

Following the weekend, two Billikens received post-season A-10 Conference honors, announced on Nov. 5. Rodriguez was named to the All-Conference second team by a vote of the league’s head coaches. Junior forward Livi Logan-Wood was named to the All-Academic team, selected by women’s soccer sports information representatives.

For Rodriguez, this is her second season being honored by the Conference; she was a member of the 2013 All-Rookie team.  Rodriguez led the team in scoring in conference games this season with 10 points. On the season, she totaled 16 points off of six goals and four assists. She was one of only six Billikens to start all 18 games, and took the most shots of anyone on the team this season with 48.

This is Logan-Wood’s second straight All-Academic honor. She is a double major in social work and international studies with a minor in Italian studies and carries a 4.0 GPA. Like Rodriguez, Logan-Wood also started every game this season, and tied for third highest scorer on the team with four goals, and was fourth on the team in points with ten.
