Kansas City Women’s Soccer now holds a record of 2-6-7 (1-3-2)

Two home games remain before conference championship tournament
Luis Marin
Forward, #5 Emma Byrne

  The Roos hoped that Brianna Castleberry’s 90th-minute goal to earn their first conference win on Thursday Oct. 5 would help flip the switch as the season winds down.

  Castleberry has scored four goals in October so far, leading her to six goals total and increasing her lead for most goals on the team this season.

  Along with Castleberry is freshman Gigi Mir, who has also been a vital part of the Roos offense this year. Mir has converted three goals, the second highest on the team.

  Castleberry, Lily Stedman, Sophia Smith, Sophia Limongi and Riley Moore are the only players to have started every match of the season so far. Here are some players to look out for: 

#29 Sophomore midfielder Brianna Castleberry: 6 goals, 1 assist 

#19 Freshman forward/midfielder Gigi Mir: 3 goals

#27 Junior midfielder Kayda Kamolz: 2 goals, 1 assist

#14 Sophomore forward Holland Hawkinks: 1 goal, 1 assist 

#28 Junior forward Lily Stedman: 1 goal, 3 assists

  The Roos set a program record with six consecutive draws to end September and hold an overall record of 2-6-7, while being 1-3-2 in conference play.

  With the season coming to an end, the Roos play their last games at their home field on Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 22 at 1 p.m.

The Summit League Tournament quarter and semi-finals will be played on Oct. 27 and Oct. 29 with the championship game being held on Nov. 4. It will be determined as play continues who will be in the matches
