On a windy but mild Oct. 21 afternoon, Comet women's soccer played a tough, scoreless half against Hope College. The tide turned in the second half, where, after Hope's 15 to Olivet's 3 shots on goal, Hope came up with two in the net and a 2-0 win.
The Comets stand at 7-4 in the conference and a promising season. Olivet hosts Trine this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. as part of a Breast Cancer Awareness event. The Comet men play Trine at noon, and game, food and prizes will be featured throughout the afternoon.
