SOLON – Tuesday 10 May 2022: The scoring train, which was the Independence Mustangs women’s soccer team, went off the rails Tuesday night in Solon.

The Mustangs fall to the Spartans (12-3) with a score of 2-0.

“Certainly it was hard to swallow,” said head coach Shawn Conaway, “It basically comes down to making two mistakes resulting in the two goals for Solon.”

Other than that, the Mustangs dominated possession and the flow of the game.

Coach Conaway added credit goes to the Spartans, who obstructed their defensive midfielder and made it difficult to get balls into the net.

“We’ll use this as a learning experience and not make the same mistakes post-season,” added coach Conaway, “So proud of what these girls have achieved this season, but we’re a long way from having finished.”

The Mustangs hosted West Delaware in the regular season finale on Friday night. Look for this game in Wednesday’s paper. The women’s team will start the playoffs on May 24 against winner Webster City and Iowa Falls-Alden. This game will be played in Independence.
