Women's World Cup win motivates Southeast soccer team

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The win from the USA Women's soccer team has inspired soccer teams in the Heartland to push harder.

According to Adam Kleman, assistant coach of Southeast Missouri State University Women's soccer team, they are one of those teams very inspired by the recent win.

He said the win is a big motivation for the team.

"Hopefully this will just push the girls to work even harder over the summer and come in more fit for pre-season, Kleman said. "I'm hoping it lets us just spring board as quick as we can to get ready for out first match."

Kleman also said the match was a big thing for bringing more awareness to women in soccer as well.

"It just says that when a group of 23 individuals can come together, anything is possible," Kleman said. "That's all that you can want as a coach, is that all 1 through twenty-three [players] ready to go. When everyone buys into the common goal, great things can happen."

The team first game is scheduled for August 12.

    Federal judges have ordered the EPA to ban a dangerous, popular insecticide, but farmers in Southeast Missouri who use the chemical are coming to its defense.
