Zags Christen New Soccer Field with a Big Win

The Gonzaga University women's soccer team beat a University from Portland...well not the powerhouse Portland Pilots but still posted an impressive shutout against Portland State University.

Both teams were looking for their first win of the seasons as each lost their season opener. The lady Zags proved victorious thanks to a goal by junior Christi D'Agostino. The Bulldogs improved to 1-1-0 on the young season and dropped Portland State to 0-2-0. The 1-0 score was quite misleading as a majority of the game was played in the Vikings zone but the Zags were unable to capitalize until the second half. Gonzaga also out shot their opponent 14-8. The Gonzaga defense also stepped up big and never really allowed a serious scoring opportunity until a few minutes after D'Agostino's goal but Lauren Ames was able to squash that attempt. Ames finished with three saves to post the shutout.

The Bulldogs will take on the University of Idaho in Moscow before coming home to host hated rival Washington a week from today at 1 P.M.
