What a fight for the UMHB Cru Soccer across the board for both men and women’s soccer!! I got to watch firsthand what pouring you heart out on the field and leaving everything you had inside the lines!
Friday for the Cru, the girls played McMurry University and blew past them with a breeze. The girls made soccer look so easy on Friday. Winning every ball and pounding the goalkeeper from McMurry with shot, after shot. Didn’t make it easy for the visiting team. Caityln Shaunghnessy, a sophomore defender for the Cru, was thrown in a new position of being a forward. Coach Elkins gave her a day to learn and figure out the position, but that didn’t affect her performance at all. She came out on the Stat Leaders with 4 shots and 3 goals, a hat-trick!!

Saturday, for the ladies of UMHB, was not at all an easy task! Watching the girls fight so hard for something that they wanted so bad, made for a good game to watch.
The girls fell to the Cowgirls of Hardin-Simmons University, who is ranked #20 in the nation. Both teams put a good fight and you know girls in soccer always make it worth wild to watch when they foul the other girl because they didn’t like something the other didn’t like. The Cowgirls outshot the Cru 14-5, but that bother Courtney Craig, goalkeeper for the Cru, who made 9 big saves to keep it 1-0, so that the Cru to have a chance to come back and tie it up.
But at the end of the day, the girls cannot change the score, but they can move on to clinch second and get a chance at a conference championship!
Cru Women’s Soccer as another chance to bring home the W on Thursday against Sol-Rose University in Alpine!
GO CRU!! Be Different. Be Great.
