Two Racers Play in Women's World Cup

Posted on Monday, August 13, 2018


Two members of this year's Northwestern Ohio women's soccer team, Kate Agyemang (SO/Kumasi, Ghana) and Belinda Anane, recently competed as part of the Ghana national team at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Both Agyemang and Anane saw action in Ghana's first pool play match against host France on August 5, with Agyemang starting and playing 32 minutes and Anane seeing 17 minutes off the bench.

While neither played in Ghana's second pool play match versus The Netherlands on August 8, Agyemang played all 90 minutes in the final match against New Zealand on August 12.

Agyemang was a First Team NAIA All-American and First Team All-Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference selection as a freshman for UNOH last season.  She scored goals against Olivet Nazarene and Rochester and had assists at Indiana Tech, Cornerstone, Lawrence Tech in the WHAC quarterfinals and Siena Heights in the conference finals.  Agyemang helped lead the Racers to the WHAC regular-season title for the fourth consecutive year and to the semifinals of the NAIA Tournament for the fourth straight season.

Anane will be a junior on the Northwestern Ohio roster this season.  After earning a bronze medal for Ghana at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2016, scoring 10 goals with five assists, she played at Navarro College (TX) in 2017.  Anane tallied 11 goals and three assists for the Bulldogs as she earned All-Region XIV honors, including setting a Navarro record with six goals at Jacksonville College on October 6.

Navarro finished 16-2 last season, were ranked #3 in the National Junior College Athletic Association poll and were the Region XIV runners-up for the third consecutive year.

UNOH, which was recently named as the favorite in the conference preseason poll, opens the regular season on Wednesday, August 22, at 7:00, as the Racers travel to Taylor.  The home opener for the Racers will be on Saturday, August 25, against Vanguard at 4:00.
