ULM soccer headed into Saturday’s game with hopes of securing their first win of the season, as well as their first conference win. Despite their efforts to score, ULM lost to Texas State 4-0.  The Warhawks looked overmatched on the pitch against Texas State.  This game marks the fifth time that ULM has gone scoreless in the 2018 season.

This game also marks the eighth straight game that the team has given up multiple goals. Alexiss Trudeau lead the Warhawks with three shots and one on target, while Maelwenn Gaiffas followed behind her with two shots and one on target. Bre Trescott and Brooke Scroggins split some time in at goalie. Trescott recorded eight saves while Scroggins recorded three.

It only took the Bobcats about 16 minutes to score their first goal on a through ball pass. The Warhawks got behind because of the slow start as they couldn’t make enough runs to force some shots on target. ULM had three saves in the first half, but gave up two goals. On the second goal, the Bobcats scored on a rocket kick that hit the right post and rolled into the back of the net. What a bad way to end the half as the score was 2-0.

In the second half, things would get worse for the Warhawks. Five minutes into the half, the Bobcats struck again to push the lead to three.

After that quick start, ULM showed some signs of life as they pushed the ball up the pitch looking to score. The tide quickly turned again as the Bobcats scored, yet another goal to push the lead to four. On the defensive side, ULM gave up 30 shots with 15 on target. The Warhawks are in a hole now at 0-8. Last year the team dropped seven straight before ending a game in a 1-1 tie against Southeastern.

This is now back to back seasons where the Warhawks have gotten off to poor starts. Their schedule only gets worse as they head into the heart of their Sun Belt conference schedule. Things need to turn around quickly before the season gets out of hand.

Head coach Wheelock and the Warhawks will look to turn things around in their next match. On Friday, ULM will be on the road when they face Arkansas State at 3 p.m. Then they will head to Lafayette to face bitter in-state rival Louisiana Lafayette. That game is scheduled for Sept. 23  at 1 p.m.
