<strong>Bearcats End With Three Shutouts; Hold Opponents to Record 171 Shots</strong>
(PDF) Northwest Missouri State soccer tallied three shutouts and held opponents to a school record 171 shots in finishing the season 6-11-1. The Bearcats put together a 5-8-1 campaign in MIAA play, finishing sixth.
Head Coach Tracy Hoza became the all-time winningest coach in program history after a 3-2 victory against Emporia State Sept. 21. The win came at the end of back-to-back victories for the Bearcats, who had picked up their first win of the season on Sept. 18 against Wayne (Neb.) State.
Northwest put together a three-game unbeaten streak near the latter half of the season to challenge for a spot in the MIAA Postseason Tournament. The Bearcats tied Washburn on Oct. 12 to snap a three-game losing, posted back-to-back shutouts with a 1-0 win at Emporia and recorded an upset victory against No. 25 Missouri Southern at home.
The Bearcats picked up their third shutout in the season finale at Missouri Western in a 1-0 victory. Northwest recorded three shutouts in the final five games, the best such streak since the beginning of the 2006 season.
Four Bearcats earned All-MIAA honors, with Brittany Cash leading the way with second team honors. Andrea Freeman, Amanda Deml and Amanda Olah each picked up honorable mention awards.
Deml continued by becoming the first Bearcat soccer student-athlete to be mentioned
on the CoSIDA Academic All-District team, earning third team accolades. She maintained 3.82 grade point average in parks and recreation management.
