Women's soccer hits the road

After getting their 1st win of the year, the GU women's soccer team will be looking to for two in a row when they take on the University of Idaho. The Lady Zags are coming off a solid victory over Portland State University, as they got a 1-0 win at the debut of the new Gonzaga soccer field. The Zags also be looking for some revenge tomorrow, as last season the Vandals defeated GU 2-0 in Spokane.

The Lady Zags showed great team spirit, as they were able to recover from the 4-0 loss to Long Beach State that kicked off their season. The 1-0 win over Portland State should serve as great momentum, and the Lady Zags have a great opportunity to get to 2-1 on the season. It was the first career goal by sophomore defender Christi D'Agostino that enabled the Zags to get the victory, but it was an all around excellent team effort.

Traveling to Moscow will not be an easy task for the Lady Zags. The University of Idaho started their season with a tough 2-1 loss to in double overtime to Cal State University Bakersfield. The Vandals are coming off a 5-12-1 season, and have set the goal of reaching their first ever WAC tournament. Idaho is led by captains Aimee Goss and Kelsey Manning, and will certainly be difficult to defeat in Moscow.

TKR wants to wish the women's soccer the best of luck as they make the difficult trip to Moscow. Hopefully the ladies can build on their 1st win of the season, and build some momentum before they host the University of Washington on August 31st.
