Hey, guys! Hope all is going well. It’s that time of year again, preseason! That means soccer is back and the regular season is just around the corner.
This past Saturday, the Washington Spirit opened up preseason against the Penn State women’s soccer team. Instead of playing two forty-five minute halves, they played three thirty minute periods.
The Spirit started a lineup that will probably look very similar to the opening day roster.
Other than three goals in the second period, the game was fairly back and forth. It was exactly what you would expect for an opening game of preseason.
Kristie Mewis and Kassey Kallman made their Spirit debuts after being traded from the Boston Breakers in the offseason. Canadian international and 2016 draft pick Lindsay Agnew also made her debut in the match.
Well, that’s all for now because we were unable to get interviews this week. I’ll be back in DC this weekend as the Spirit take on the University of North Carolina in the second preseason match of the year.
Until next time,
