On Oct. 7, the College’s women’s soccer team defeated Rutgers University-Newark by a score of 9-1. The Lions dominated the ball from the very beginning, scoring their first goal only seven minutes into the game.  “I felt so happy that we started off the game on a strong suit,” said senior forward Sophie Vieira, who scored the first goal. The Lions put up a persistent fight, scoring four goals in the first half. They also took a total of 21 shots to the Scarlet Raiders’ one during that time. “We started really strong, which was a pretty big objective,” said Coach Danny Blank. “We knew that that’s a team that plays on a lot of emotion, and we didn’t want to give them a chance to build any emotional momentum.”

OPINION: The Roar app should NOT be used as social media

Most students are encouraged to download the Roar app during their transition into the College. It is advertised as a resource for academics, extracurriculars and community. Unfortunately, because of the way that some folks use the app, what could have been an asset has turned into an irrelevant social-media-like platform.
