The Lady Eagles soccer team dropped their season opener to host Stephens College (NCAA III) 2-1 last week. The Eagles are 0-1-0 on the year.
The game was played in sloppy conditions due to a thunderstorm which delayed the game early in the first half by 30 minutes. Fielding several new players, the Eagles gave up two goals before pulling within one goal on a PK by senior forward Kirsten Passwaters. The Eagles couldn't muster any more offense though, falling by the 2-1 final.
The Eagles will take the field again on September 5 in Minneapolis, MN, when they will face defending region and NCCAA #3 Providence University College. Faith will then return home to take on NAIA Lincoln Christian University at 2 PM on Saturday. You can catch Saturday's game live on the Eagles website.
