Opening the BIG EAST Slate
This past weekend, we only had one game and came away with a 2-0 win over a dogged Duquesne team. This was the last of our non-conference games and we finished that slate of games with a 5-2-2 record. To be fair, it is kind of where I expected us to be right now. Our non-conference schedule was rigorous with some tough games, but also had the added challenge of playing six of those away from the confines of Shaw Field. It tested the girls and I’d like to think we have emerged stronger as a result.
This week we start the BIG EAST schedule on the road against one of our bigger rivals, DePaul University, followed by a trip to Xavier for the first time. These are two tough road games, but we are optimistic we can build on our recent run of good form. If you are in the area, please stop by to support!
Again, we appreciate all your support and I look forward to catching up with you next week.
