Rementer's Double Not Enough in 3-2 Loss
Eugene, Ore. - Trailing 3-0, LMU mounted a furious comeback and nearly pulled off the recovery thanks to two goals from sophomore Erin Rementer but time ran out as the Lions had their three-game winning streak snapped with a 3-2 defeat at Oregon on Friday night. The Lions (4-2-0) also see their three-match shutout streak come to an end against the hosts Ducks (3-1-1) in the opening game of the Oregon Nike Tournament.

LOS ANGELES - Carrying a 2-0 record after the opening week of play, the LMU women's soccer team hits the road for the first time in 2014 for a pair of games. The Lions will face two Pac-12 opponents in Oregon State (Friday, Aug. 29) and Oregon (Sunday, Aug. 31).

Opening weekend saw four Lions score goals in helping LMU to a 3-1 come-from-behind win over New Mexico State and a 2-0 shutout of Cleveland State. Junior Callie Taylor scored the game-winner in each match, earning West Coast Conference Player of the Week honors. Also finding the back of the net were Sydney Zuccolotto, Shannon Kent and Jill Farley. Brianne Medved contributed three assists while Jocelyn Blankenship and Morgan Hilby had one helper each.

The trip to Corvallis and Eugene is a special one for Lion freshman duo Jill Farley and Lexi Frey. The pair hail from Tualatin, Ore., and Beaverton, Ore., respectively, where they spent the majority of their prep careers as rivals. As star defenders for their respective squads, their final meeting in high school came in the Oregon State semifinals last fall

Frey's Jesuit High School side carried a 14-game shutout into the match. And Farley picked that day to play spoiler. The Tualatin High School star scored the first goal allowed all season by Jesuit, and then went on to assist the second in a 2-0 victory.

The LMU Sports Network sat down with the former rivals to talk about their prep careers, their return home this weekend, how they made their way to LMU and what it's like to now don the same LMU crimson and play side-by-side in the Lions' back line.
