In their final home game of the year, the women’s soccer team endured a rough 70 minutes of play against the Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes. The women lost 7-0 Saturday and fell to 0-6-1 in Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference and 1-13-1 overall. Kansas Wesleyan improved to 7-0 in the conference and are tied for first in the KCAC with the Ottawa Braves.

The Coyotes wasted no time as they scored four goals in the first half to gain a significant lead on the Builders. The second half saw much of the same and Southwestern could not get a goal in against a stifling Coyote defense.

The Builders got off just six shots the entire game and two shot on goals. Three of the six shots were contributed by Morgan Constantine, junior defender. Daniel Carr, senior goalie, had nine saves for Southwestern.

The women play their next game at 5:30 p.m. at McPherson College.
