Football, Women's Soccer Plan Weekend Scrimmages

If you haven't seen Pacific Lutheran's new synthetic athletic field, football and women's soccer scrimmages scheduled for this weekend will provide that opportunity.

Women's soccer christened the field last Saturday with an exhibition against Evergreen State (pictured) and hosts a pair of non-counting matches this weekend. At 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31, the Lutes greet Capilano University from British Columbia in an exhibition match, and exactly 24 hours later they face Highline CC in a scrimmage.

The PLU football team, which has gotten used to the new synthetic surface during practices, will hold its annual preseason intrasquad scrimmage starting at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 1.

Football alumni are invited to attend and meet the 2012 team following the scrimmage. Additionally, an alumni flag football game is planned.

There will be no admission charge for any of the weekend scrimmages.
