Lady Hornets Can't Seem To Catch A Break

Two months has come and gone and so far the Delaware State Lady Hornets soccer team continued to find ways to lose games this season just like last season. No matter how hard they tried, how hard they play, the lady hornets soccer team can't seem to get that losing monkey off their backs.

For DSU head coach Nitan Soni, he is doing all he can to get the lady hornets to stay positive because they improve well on defense unlike last season, however on offense its a different story. The Hornets offense are getting outplayed by not putting enough shots on goal. In fact opponents have out shot DSU by a average of 17-8 per game, shutout five times, and has good chances to scored but couldn't. No wonder DSU has one win, 11 losses, and two ties this season.

There were some bright spots for DSU: The lady hornets scored 12 goals during their 12-0 victory over Lincoln University on back on September 10th. The most goals scored since September 16, 2007 versus Concordia University when the lady hornets scored eight. Also, goalkeeper Katelyn Koslosky is fifth in the nation in the saves category with a score of 78.0.

With four games left, I'm afraid that the coach Soni era may soon come to an end if the lady hornets don't find a way to win these final four games on offense including the Great West tournament.

One thing I will say is this, the lady hornets are improving on defense but if you don't win games on offense then you will have consecutive losing seasons since 2007 and that's something any hornet fan and Athletic Director Derek Carter don't want to see.
