A very tired Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s soccer team wound up its exhibition campaign Sunday (Aug 27) in Washington State.
The WolfPack dropped a 4-0 decision to the Pacific Lutheran University Lutes (NCAA Div II) in Seattle.
Thompson Rivers was feeling the effects of 34 degree Celsius temperatures and a short turnaround according to head coach Kelly Shantz.
PLU led 1-0 after the first half. They scored on WolfPack keeper Danielle Robertson (Courtney, BC) nine minutes in.
The Lutes went up 2-0 early in the second half and added two more late for the victory.
The WolfPack finish the exhibition campaign with a record of 0-5-1.
Shantz gave credit to Cassie Morris (2nd year, Kamloops, BC) and rookies Ryley Singleterry (Surrey, BC) and Georgia Aldus (Kamloops, BC) for strong play.
Thompson Rivers has the first week bye in Canada West play and won’t see their first regular season action until the weekend of September 8-10th when they visit the UNBC Timberwolves in Prince George (Sept 8) and then the MacEwan University Griffins in Edmonton (Sept 12).
Their home opener isn’t until September 22nd when they entertain the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds at Hillside Stadium. Kick off will be 1 pm.
All of the WolfPack matches: home and away will be shown on a pay-per-view basis on Canada West TV.
