With eight new players seeing playing time, the LU women’s soccer team fought hard to a 2-1 loss to Lake Forest last Saturday – during unfortunate simultaneity with the home football game.Lake Forest took an early lead in the 9th minute on a follow-up score by Tanya Lopez. This lead was subsequently bolstered early in the second half on an Erika Koesling goal. The Vikings refused to give up, as veteran forward Greta Raaen scored her fourth goal of the year, just minutes following. Chances for Lawrence thereafter were numerous yet nothing was to come to fruition.
The women are set to see action next weekend in the “deep south” of the MWC. There, Grinnell and Knox are the potential victims of the team’s first win.
