Gophers Women’s Soccer Start Season Tonight at ELR Stadium
The Minnesota Gopher Women’s Soccer Team opens their 2012 home schedule this weekend with two matches at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium, in St. Paul.
Tonight at 7:00 they will be tested when they play FSU who were a final four College Cup team in 2011. FSU captain and Woodbury, Minn., native Kassey Kallman will be missing from the lineup because she is currently in Japan with the US Women’s U-20 National Team as they prepare for the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
