Sunday Night Zag Tracks

We hope that you have been enjoying our opponent breakdowns thus far. We are anxiously anticipating the beginning of the season and will be breaking down one Gonzaga opponent a day. Tomorrow we will be beginning our breakdowns of the Old Spice Classic field. In other news...

--It was a busy day for Gonzaga soccer as both the men and women's team took the field today. The guys lost to rival Washington 2-1 in Seattle. Ben Funkhouser scored the only goal for the Zags in the match up between cross state foes. The Huskies have dominated the Gonzaga over the years, racking up an impressive 19-1-1 record. The win puts UW at 5-3-0 for the year and drops the Bulldogs to 4-3-1. The guys are back in action this coming weekend as they return home to take on San Francisco and Santa Clara.

--It was a very exciting women's soccer game today at Gonzaga Soccer Field, so exciting in fact that the game went into double overtime. The Zags (5-6-0) pulled out the win thanks to the excellent goal by Sheridan Jones in the 104th minute to give the ladies a 2-1 win. Sarah Rhodes scored the first goal for Gonzaga in the 57th minute but the Eagles quickly tied the game in the very next minute after a defensive error by the Zags. The ladies got a huge monkey off their back with today's victory. Gonzaga had been held scoreless in their previous four matches but a victory today gets them right back on track. Hopefully they can keep the momentum from this victory going as they will hit the road on Friday for a match up with Idaho State.
