After a difficult start to their season, the women's soccer team will get a chance to secure their 1st victory of the season, when they take on the Portland State Vikings on Sunday. The Lady Zags kicked their season off with a tough 4-0 loss at Long Beach State, but should like their chances against Portland State.
Portland State also started their season with a loss, as they fell 2-1 to Oregon State. The Vikings fell behind 2-0 in Corvallis, but were able to make it an exciting finish, when they scored in the 75th minute. Much like the Lady Zags, the Vikings were dominated on the offensive end, as they were out shot 20-2. The Vikings return 15 letter-winners from last season, but are welcoming in a new head coach, and a huge freshman class. The freshman will be looking to compete for immediate playing time. The Vikings do return 4 All Big-Sky performers from last season, but seem to be a team that is in transition.
Portland State should give the Zags a chance to record their first win of the season. This will also be the debut of the new Gonzaga soccer field, so it should be quite the environment tomorrow. TKR hopes everyone will go and support the Lady Zags, and also take the opportunity to check out the beautiful new stadium
