The LMU women's soccer team closes out the 2013 season on its home Sullivan Field Saturday, hosting WCC and PCH Cup rival Pepperdine in a 6 p.m. tilt. The Lions will honor their 11-member senior class prior to kick off.
The LMU women's soccer team finally broke the seal with its first goal scored on the road, but it would not be enough to overcome a potent USC attack in a 5-1 final at the Trojans' McAlister Field Sunday afternoon.
