MOUNT VERNON—“There is no disgrace in being knocked down,” said Miles Lane, the noted boxing referee. “The only disgrace is in not getting back up.” 

The Barons’ women’s soccer team was knocked down by Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) 8-0 Aug. 23 in Savannah but got back up to give NCAA Division II power North Alabama a scare at home Aug. 25 before being bested 1-0.

Against SCAD, the Lady Barons seemed a little shell-shocked as the Lady Bees were allowed to control the midfield and play balls through for their front runners at will. 

“We were playing in three-quarter time and they were going full-tilt,” said Glass. “Our freshmen got a rousing welcome into the NAIA.”

Freshman forward Melissa Feuerriegel did most of the damage for the Bees as the Clontarf, Queensland (Australia) native scored four goals for SCAD.

A couple of days later, the Lady Barons played quicker from the start against North Alabama. 

“They had read up on our game with SCAD and were expecting a walk-over,” said Glass. “Instead, we dominated the run of play for long stretches and had several golden opportunities that just went wide.” 

In the end, Meghan Bailey came through with the game winner for the visitors in the 70th minute.

The Lady Barons hosted University of South Carolina-Aiken, another NCAA Division II opponent, Aug. 31. They will take on Shorter College at home Saturday, Sept. 9 at 2 p.m. A complete fall play schedule can be found on the college’s website under the Athletics’ link, www.bpc.edu.
