Game 3-1-100: Women's Soccer exhibition vs. LIU

What: Women's soccer vs. LIU-Brooklyn
Where: Morrone Stadium
When: 1:00 PM, Sunday, August 12, 2012
Result: Win 2-1

This was my first game of the year, and my 100th game over all. Exciting! And considering it was an exhibition, you could say the same about the game.

The players warm up before the match. 
UConn came out wearing their gray warm-up uniforms for the whole game. At first I thought they were just wearing them for practice, but they wore them the whole game. And LIU's uniforms had no numbers. Strange.

UConn got off to a 1-0 lead just before the half, thanks to a Linda Ruutu goal off a free kick. We went up 2-0 later, when we scored a goal in the second half. In the end, it was 2-1.

Not very exciting in general, but for an exhibition game it was. The real action starts next weekend, but this was just to get us (and the players) warmed up.

What kind of a name is Blackbirds, by the way? Hardly intimidating, unless it's 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.

Next up is a men's soccer game vs. UMass tonight. The Goal Patrol (or some of them) will be there. It should be fun. Details to come.
