Alexis Siejack got Stevenson back into the game with a goal in the first half but the Mustangs couldn’t complete a comeback.

Senior Alexis Siejack got the Mustangs on the scoreboard in the first half but the Stevenson women’s soccer team were unable to keep up with the Grove City Wolverines in the second round of the 2016 ECAC Division III Women’s Soccer Championship on Sunday afternoon at Mustang Stadium.

In the 44th minute, Siejack scorered her team-leading seventh goal of the season after she ran onto a through ball sent up by Alyssa Rasmussen and beat her defender to the goal. But that goal only cut the Wolverine’s lead in half.

Grove City had a two goal advantage before that. In the 15th minute Elena Guerra gave the Wolverines the first goal of the game. Megan Van Kirk sent a long header up the field. Guerra ran onto the ball and beat Tiffany McKee to the corner of the goal.

Then, in the 28th minue, Lindsay Huttong headed in a corner kick sent in by Jordyn White to give Grove City a 2-0 lead before Siejack’s goal.

Trailing only 2-1 at halftime, Stevenson was certainly within striking distance, but Grove City held them out of the goal in the final 45 minutes and were able to add an insurance goal in the 77th minute when Lacy Harkrader scored her 15th goal of the season off a feed from Guerra.

Though the Mustangs end their season on a loss, their first round victory over Chatham secured their eighth winning season in the past ine seasons. Stevenson finished the year with an 9-8-2 record.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
