“We had a good start in our opening weekend, we’ll get a good test from Rockhurst on Friday night,” said head coach Nate Houser. “Monday will be a good measuring stick for us to see if we can play with No. 15 Hastings.”
Christine Janssens scored the lone goal in a 2-1 loss to Southern Nazarene and continued the offensive attack on Saturday when she tallied two goals in a 3-0 victory over Oklahoma Christian. Janssens was named BU Female Player of the Week on Sunday evening. Colton Miller (football) took home the honors on the men’s side.
“Christine played great this past weekend, Haley Oborny and Chelsea Dunn were solid in our backfield,” said head coach Nate Houser. “Hopefully we can get Alix Schiraldi going this weekend heading into our home opener on Monday with Hastings College.”
