Nice interview in the Missouri State Standard with goalkeeper Jackie Jasper of the Lady Bears.
Being Missouri Valley Conference first-team two years running, the starting goalkeeper for the Missouri State women’s soccer team is hoping the trend (winning games) continues.
“The spring went really well, we had numerous freshmen come in that are very talented,” said Jasper, a junior. “I know for a fact that we can beat every team in our conference. It’s very achievable, it’s not an unrealistic goal.”
The first thing I’m doing Friday night at the Lady Bears game against Western Michigan (7:00 pm at Plaster Stadium) is get a decent action photo of Jackie, who in the words of Coach Brewer “is a Rock back there”. Her teammates have the same level of confidence in her play and that will go a long way towards backing up her words to The Standard.
