St. Louis tops Illini

Team scoring leader Sarah Aberle netted her seventh goal, but the University of Illinois women's soccer team lost 3-1 to St. Louis on Tuesday in Champaign.

Rachel Smith assisted on the goal, the Illini falling to 6-10 with one game remaining.

"It definitely wasn't our best effort," UI coach Jillian Ellis said.

The UI caps its inaugural season at home Friday against Western Illinois. Graduating seniors Missy Kahn and Erica Loechl will be honored at the 6 p.m. match.

Illini seventh.

Lorette Lyttle and Jessica Hayes finished in the top 10 as the UI women's golf team placed seventh at the San Diego State/Aldila Classic.

Lyttle was fourth after rounds of 76-76-79. Hayes was ninth with three rounds of 78.

Ashley Webb and Jillian Sitter tied for 51st. Nell Macke was 71st.
