'Cats Drop MIAA Opener 4-2 to SBU
MARYVILLE, Mo. - The Northwest Missouri State's Women's soccer team dropped their conference opener with a 4-2 loss to Southwest Baptist on Friday. This is Northwest first ever lost to Southwest Baptist.
The 'Cats started the game with a goal in the 12th minute.

SBU's Racheal Neal connected three minutes later on a pass from Vanessa Toll and Lauren Johnson. Southwest continued its barrage with two more goals to take a 3-1 lead into halftime.
The 'Cats pulled with one just a minute into the second half when Cabreros buried her own rebound in the back of the net to pull the Bearcats within one.
