Led by freshman Anna Steiner's BC record three consecutive shutouts, the Bluffton College women's soccer team won three games in a row through last week and are now 6-5 overall. Their six wins ties the BC record for wins in a season, previously turned in by the 1995 and 1996 Beaver squads.

Steiner posted shutouts over Franklin (9-0 on Sept. 25), Adrian (1-0 on Sept. 27) and Shawnee State (8-0 on Sept. 29), and currently has four shutouts on the season, tying the BC record held by Angie Kestler in 1996. She has 106 saves so far this season in 11 matches.

Bluffton handed Shawnee State an 8-0 clubbing last Wednesday as senior Chris Harney and sophomore Katie Kantner both connected for three goals each. Senior DeAnna Anderson and freshman Jill Domachowski recorded the other two BC goals while Harney and freshman April Leu each dished out an assist. The defense performed impressively for Head Coach Rick Fee as Steiner was only called on to make two saves in the contest.

On Saturday the Beavers hosted Anderson University in a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference matchup and fell to the Ravens 2-0. Steiner notched 16 saves as BC dropped to 1-2 in the HCAC.

DeAnna Anderson currently leads the HCAC is conference-game scoring, as the senior from Cory-Rawson High School has connected for five goals and one assist in HCAC competition for 11 points.
