The 2010 women's soccer season has gotten off to a rough start for the Devilettes.
After pulling it together during the exhibition contest at Delta State, the Devilettes traveled to the state of Louisiana for its season opener at Southeastern Louisiana. In a tough contest, MVSU came up short 2-0 to the Lady Lions.
The Lady Lions (1-0) out-shot Mississippi Valley State (0-1), 21-3, but had trouble finding the net against the Delta Devils. MVSU was led by freshman goalkeeper Shelby Willcocks, who posted 10 saves in her collegiate debut.
In a Sunday afternoon match-up with Louisiana-Lafayette, the Devilettes gave up four first-half goals as MVSU fell 4-0. Santoria Lunsford had a shot midway in the second period that went wide. Wilcocks again registered 10 saves in the contest.
