By Shaniqua Magee
The University of West Florida’s women’s soccer team (18-0) routed Christian Brothers (8-6-3) to a final score of 2-0 in the first round of the Gulf South Conference tournament.
The Argos beat the Bucs earlier on the season with a final score of 2-1 at the UWF Soccer Complex.
Jessica Quixley gave the Argonauts their two points of the game with the first point in the 40thminute mark with a penalty kick. The sophomore did not stop there, with her second point of the game came from a free kick at the 57thoutside of the box.
“Jessica is a great player, she works hard,” head coach Joe Bartlinski said.
Quixley is now ten goals and two assists in on the season.
“I thought we played very well today,” Quixley said. “We played with composure and we knew we had beaten them before, we just had to do it again.”
West Florida has added another win to their undefeated record and is continuing to make their coach and school proud.
“I saw some very good things today,” Bartlinski said. “I saw some front runners combining well, midfield working very, very hard. Some of the fitness is coming back. We are cleaning some things up as well, our shape was good. So, it is on to the next one, try to recover, get some rest and get ready for the next one.”
UWF had solid defense which lead the Bucs to zero points and in the end their hard work paid off.
