On Friday, Darien Pyka and Brianne Medved each tallied goals as the LMU women's soccer team handed Saint Mary's its first home loss of the season in a 2-1 final in Moraga. The win moved LMU to 7-5-2 overall and 1-1-1 in WCC play, while also snapping a five-game winless streak. After the win the Lions had dinner at Senior defender Marissa Zamora's house in Danville, CA. Junior midfielder Cori McGovern was also able to stop by her house in Danville on the way to Marissa's home. She ran through her whole house, pet her dog, pet her cat and ran back in the van to head to Marissa's! It is always nice to go to a family's home when on the road. Thank you Zamora's for having the team!

On Sunday, Battling the No. 5 ranked team in the nation, the LMU women's soccer team put up a fight, but ultimately fell 2-0 to Pepperdine. The Lions move to 7-6-2 on the season and 1-2-1 in conference play. This was a special day for the Lions as it was their designated "Think Pink" game to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Lions wore pink uniform shorts, pink sweatbands, pink shoelaces and pink wristbands to show their support of the most common cancer for women. A lot of the players know someone directly who has been affected by cancer making this a very special way to honor their friends and family. Some players honored their loved ones by writing their names on their sweatbands with permanent marker. Below is a picture of Whitney Sharpe, Yiana Dimmit and Rachel Fell wearing their pink proudly.

After splitting the games this past weekend with a win and a loss, the Lions are looking to beat WCC newcomer BYU on Thursday and San Diego on Sunday. Both games are on the road, but the Lions will return home Friday, October 28th vs. Santa Clara and Sunday, October 30th vs. Portland. Make sure to follow the Lions this weekend and we hope to see you when the Lions come home to wrap up WCC play in two weeks!
