Pronghorns womens’ soccer team hosting home-opening weekend
The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns women’s soccer team is coming home this weekend.
After opening the Canada West season last weekend on the road, the Pronghorns return home to the University of Lethbridge Stadium for their home-opening weekend as the Fraser Valley Cascades and Trinity Western Spartans come to town Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
Last weekend on the road, the Pronghorns (0-1-1) opened the season with a 2-1 loss to the Mount Royal Cougars, but earned a tough point in a 0-0 tie with the Alberta Pandas in Edmonton.
Last year’s leading scorer Nikki Furukawa scored the Horns lone goal on the weekend, but fifth-year Kayla Blacquiere was also an offensive threat, leading the Pronghorns in shot attempts on the weekend with six.
Furukawa scored six goals last season. Her goal last weekend was her 10th as a Pronghorn.
After missing all of last season due to injury, Micaela Stone returned to the Pronghorn net and stopped 12 of the 14 shots she faced.
Game time for both games this weekend is at noon
