Soccer Updates

Even though the school year has not started yet, the soccer teams are in full swing. Earlier today, both teams had games away from Spokane which resulted in a mixed bag. The men's team lost 4-1 to Creighton, a top 10 program. The women, on the other hand, won their second consecutive game in Moscow, Idaho against the University of Idaho.

--The men's team was only able to net one goal today against the powerful Creighton Bluejays. The only goal for the Zags came 53 minutes into the match when junior Tye Perdido beat the Creighton goalie with an excellent header. Perdido's goal tied the game up at 1 but the Bluejays went on to score 3 unanswered goals to bury the Zags. Creighton outshot the bulldogs 13-6 in the game.

The men's team has a nice break as their next game will take place a week from Sunday when they travel to Corvalis to take on Oregon State.

--The women's team fared much better today in Idaho as they took it to the Vandals 3-1 today. The star of the game for the bulldogs was sophomore Ashley Riley who had a goal and an assist in Gonzaga's romp of Idaho. Riley's goal came 44 seconds into the game and the Zags never looked back. Sophomore Sheridan Jones and senior Lauren Dascenzo added the other two Gonzaga goals.

The lady Zags will return to Spokane for a nice four game home stand which they kick off on Sunday against the University of Washington at 1 P.M.
