Q. How long have you been playing soccer?

A. I’ve been playing soccer since I was three and a half. A wee baby!

Q. What is your favorite part about playing soccer at Greenville?

A. I don’t like playing soccer at Greenville…I’m just kidding! I like playing at Greenville because of the girls, and that we get to travel with the boys team so that we get to watch them play too. And that’s unique to some schools.

Q. What is one of your favorite soccer memories?

A. One of my favorite memories is probably playing in Austria, and having the mountains, like the Swiss Alps behind us, and just the atmosphere there was different.

Q. What are your plans for after college?

A. After college I’m going to live at home with my mom and my dad and just cuddle with my puppies all day long and not work for as long as possible.

Q. What will you miss most about GC after you graduate?

A. Oh I’ll miss my friends. But I’m not going to miss school at all! At all in the littlest bit!

Stay tuned for our final profile for Emily Rose! The Lady Panthers will be playing against Webster for the 1st round of the Conference tournament Thursday at 6pm. Like us on facebook to get updates on the game!


Tough Loss to Principia

Posted Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Going into the game Tuesday night, we knew Principia would be a great team that would play hard the entire game. We found that we were exactly right. Although we played one of the best games we have played all year, Principia unfortunately clinched the win after scoring in double overtime.

The first half was a hard-fought 45 minutes. With 2 minutes left in the half, Jackie Sievert scored a beautiful goal off of a throw-in by Kayla Panzau. Principia answered right away, scoring less than 2 minutes later to tie the game up 1-1. The GC ladies did not back down! Natalie Henneberry scored off a corner kick by Jackie to bring Greenville up 2-1! That was the score heading into halftime and the ladies were excited for another half of back-and-forth action!

Both teams came out strong after their halftime talks and played impressive defense all half long. The score remained 2-1 until Principia scored with only 13 minutes left in the game. With this goal, the score was tied 2-2 and, after the 13 minutes were over, Greenville and Principia were headed to overtime!

The first 1o minutes went by without a goal, so double overtime was needed. With just one minute left, Principia capitalized on a corner kick and scored the goal that ended the game. This brings our final regular season record to 13-6.

Even though we lost, we know we played a great game and battled the entire 109 minutes we played. This was the closest we have ever come to beating Principia and we are excited to play them again either in the post-season or next year.

We finished third in the SLIAC Confrence, so our next game is away against Webster for the semi-finals! We hope to bring home a win and move to the finals for the second year in a row!

Senior Day 2011! (10/22)

Posted Monday, October 24th, 2011

As we took the field for our last home game of the season, there was a lot of emotion in everyone. We realized this would probably be the last time the seniors on the team would play on our home field. We were more than ready to play our confrence rival, Fontbonne, and to give the seniors a good game to remember. The game started well for the team, as the Panthers controlled the game for most of the first half. Natalie Henneberry scored a goal off of a corner kick by senior, Jackie Sievert to bring the score to 1-0 GC with 20 minutes left in the half. About 7 minutes later, Mo Murphy got fouled in the box and was awarded a penalty kick that she buried in the net. This brought the score to 2-0 Greenville as the ladies headed into halftime.

Instead of a the usual pep-talk, halftime was a celebration of the six senior players on the team this year. The GC Women’s soccer graduating class of 2011 includes Rachel Bedtelyon, Jamie Hoag, Rachel Irwin, Emily Rose, Jackie Sievert, and Rachel Zahniser. All of these lovely ladies have been such a blessing to the team and will be greatly missed. The ceremony at halftime included the seniors walking to the field with special members of their families, their teammates presenting them with gifts, Coach Mac giving thanks to the girls, and lots of pictures! It was a fun time that the amazing ladies deserved, but as soon as the camera flashed for the last time, we all knew it was back to business.

The second half was not as nice to the Panthers, as the Griffin’s were able to score 2 goals to end the game in a 2-2 tie. Lucky for us, the game was not yet over. Headed into overtime, GC was ready to play. The ladies dominated play and, with less than 3 minutes left in the first OT, Jackie Sievert found the back of the net to get the Panthers the win 3-2!

It was a hard-fought battle that ended with a favorable result for us…but more importantly, it was a day to celebrate our seniors. We love you ladies!
