The Gustavus women’s soccer team took part in a three-team pre-season scrimmage on Saturday afternoon on the Gustie Soccer Field in St. Peter, Minn. Macalester College and Bethany Lutheran College were the other two squads invited to campus for the scrimmage. Gustavus played back-to-back two 30 minute sessions against Bethany at 11:00 a.m. and Macalester at 12:00 p.m.
Head Coach Mike Stehlik wanted to focus on keeping his team healthy, putting to work what they have practiced in camp, and competition at the scrimmage. “Scrimmages are a learning process, we don’t worry too much about the scores as much as what we get out of it,” commented Stehlik.
The Gustavus women’s soccer team will open the 2011 season with a home match on Friday, Sept. 2 against non-conference opponent UW-Stout at 12:00 p.m.
