Women’s Soccer Defeats DePauw

August 31st, 2007

Freshman midfielder Taylor Callen scored her first collegiate goal and then recorded her first collegiate assist to help lead Westmont Women’s Soccer to a 2-0 shutout over DePauw of Indiana (0-1), the NCAA Division III’s twenty-third ranked team. Amy Lawson picked up her second goal of the season just before the close of the first half to give Westmont (1-1) the victory. The Warriors are playing in the Bob Baptista Invitational in Wheaton, Illinois.

“We withstood a lot of pressure from DePauw early in the game,” reported head coach Rebecca Mouw. “Then we started putting together some runs and creating some opportunities. Taylor had the ball on the right side at about the 30 minute mark and took a couple of defenders on – beating them and scoring from about 20 yards out.”


Women’s Soccer Stumbles against Coyotes

August 28th, 2007

It was not the season opener which head coach Rebecca Mouw had in mind – especially one conducted on her birthday. Westmont women’s soccer did not look impressive in the first half of their game against Cal State San Bernardino (2-0). The Warriors were out shot 5-0 in the first 45 minutes with two of the Coyotes’ shots finding the back of the net as CSU San Bernardino spoiled the party with a 2-1 win.

“We came out flat in the first half,” acknowledge Mouw. “Our inability to do the small things correctly kept us from functioning as a team.”

The Coyotes’ first goal came just 4:48 into the game on a one-on-one shot attempt by Katie Liby from 8 yards out. A series of three passes set up Liby who had three shots on goal in the first half.

“With 17 new players on our roster, it was great to see us come out feeling positive against the national champs,” said head coach Dave Wolf.

Warriors Sign Fenske

August 22nd, 2007

John Moore, head coach for Westmont men’s basketball, announced the signing today of 6′ 8″, 215 pound post player Bobby Fenske of Carrollton, Texas. A sophomore transfer from the U.S. Naval Academy, Fenske is expected to help compensate for the sudden departure of Tom Garlepp.

“I think Bobby has the potential to fill the hole Tom left,” said Moore. In some ways it’s a wash, but Bobby has three years of eligibility so we get an extra year with him. He is a face-up guy who can really shoot the ball and is good on the perimeter. From all accounts he is a phenomenal shooter who can put the ball in the hole. His high school coach called him the best shooter he has ever seen.”
