Soccer To Host St. thomas thursday Night
Posted: Wednesday, September 7, 2005
EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire soccer team will try to get their first win of the season as they host the University of St. Thomas Tommies, Thursday night at 5 p.m. at the Bollinger Fields.
The Blugolds will try to snap a two-game losing streak to the Tommies. The Blugolds led early in the match last year, but the breaks went the Tommies way and St. Thomas pulled out a 4-1 victory.
In its first match of the season against Augsburg, the Blugold soccer team struggled to a scoreless tie. The Blugolds out shot the Auggies, but were unable to put the ball in the net. The Blugolds were supposed to play again last Sunday at Carleton, but the game was cancelled due to weather. No make up has been announced.
Liz Kooistra (Fr., Lakeville, Minn.) and Maria Iaizzo (Sr., White Bear Lake, Minn.) had six shots each for the Blugolds in the opener, with Marcia Foltz (Sr., Madison, Wis./Memorial HS) and Allison Muer (Fr., Minneapolis, Minn./South HS) adding five shots apiece.
The Tommies are currently 1-1 on the season, winning their last match against Cornell (Iowa) 3-0. The St. Thomas soccer team had a lot of one goal defeats last year, and will look to change that around this season.
The action gets underway Thursday night at 5 p.m. at the Bollinger Fields.
