2) Despite outshooting Morehead State today, the women's soccer team lost 3-1 to the Eagles. Early goals (in the 3rd and 11th minutes) were too much for the Zips to overcome, despite aggressive play in the second half. Morehead State's 1-3-0 record is just salt in the wound. The women play their third straight home game to open the season against Canisius on Friday. GoZips.com has the box score.
3) If you didn't like the last bit of news, you definitely won't like this: The men's soccer team (gasp!) lost their exhibition game against South Florida yesterday. The Zips absolutely dominated the game, but couldn't capitalize on their abundant opportunities (14-7 in shots, 11-5 in shots on goal). Let's hope that this was the one fluke of the year and be glad it happened in the exhibition season. The men have away games against North Carolina and Wake Forest (both top 10 teams) this upcoming week.
