MACOMB, Ill. - Two days off perhaps the biggest victory in school history, Southeast Missouri was upset by Western Illinois 2-1 on Sunday afternoon, ending Southeast's best start in school history. Entering today's game Southeast had been one of only three schools in the country with a perfect record.

Southeast (9-1 overall) defeated Western Illinois twice last season and the Westerwinds (3-8) had revenge on their mind. WIU struck quickly getting first half goals from Amanda Wandtke and Sarah Lippert in the first 26 minutes of the opening period.

Southeast entered halftime with a 2-0 deficit, its first of the season.

Freshman Diana Poovey would add the lone Southeast goal in the second period at the 63:44 mark off an assist by Laura Hauskins.

Goalkeeper Beth Guccione made three saves for Southeast, while only facing eight WIU shots. The Westerwinds Summer Perala made nine saves on the day.

The loss snapped Southeast's 9-0 start, the best start in school history. It also snapped the Otahkians six consecutive road victories, also a school record. Southeast had not dropped a road contest since falling 2-1 at Murray State on October 3 of last season.

On Friday, Southeast had defeated its OVC nemesis, Eastern Illinois, 1-0. It was the first time in school history Southeast had defeated EIU.

Southeast will return home for a big matchup with 2000 OVC Tournament Champion Tennesee Tech on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. Southeast currently has a nine game winning streak at Houck Stadium.
