Fulton, MO 10/26/2022- The Westminster College women's soccer team took on the Blackburn College Beavers on Wednesday night in the final regular season home game of the season. It would be all Blue Jays as they would win 8-0. Westminster improves to 9-4-3 on the season and 8-2-3 in the conference. Blackburn falls to 1-15-0 and 0-13-0 in the conference.

The Blue Jays currently have the second seed. They await the result of Webster University vs Spalding University on Thursday night and the Jays have a big matchup on Saturday against the top-seeded and undefeated Fontbonne University. Westminster will see where they stand after the dust settles on Saturday and find out when/where they will play when the conference tournament starts next week.
