This Week
The University of North Dakota soccer team hits the road this weekend for a pair of non-conference games. UND will travel to Chicago to take on Chicago State on Friday, Aug. 29, and concludes its trip in Green Bay, Wis., in a showdown with Green Bay on Sunday, Aug. 31.

Last Time Out
North Dakota opened the season with a 1-0 road loss to in-state rival North Dakota State on Aug. 22. UND was then scheduled to face South Dakota State on Aug. 24, but due to the heavy rain in Grand Forks the previous evening, the game was cancelled because of poor field conditions.

About Chicago State
Chicago State enters Friday’s match following a road-split the previous weekend. The Cougars fell 7-0 to the Arkansas-Little Rock on Aug. 22. However, the Cougars were able to rebound the following day with a 4-1 win over the Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

This year marks the inaugural season of women’s soccer for Chicago State. The Cougars will compete in the Western Athletic Conference this season.

The Cougars are led by head coach Tony Tommasi.

Versus the Cougars
This is the first meeting between UND and Chicago State.

About Green Bay
Green Bay enters the weekend following a home-split. The Phoenix defeated IUPUI, 3-1, Aug. 22, but fell Aug. 24, 2-0, to Ball State. Green Bay hosts Northern Iowa on Friday, Aug. 29, before hosting UND on Sunday, Aug. 31.

Green Bay is looking to improve after a 4-8-5 record and 1-5-1 Horizon League record from 2013.

The Phoenix are led by junior forward Heidi Hartmann who has two goals in her first two games this season.

Versus the Phoenix
This will be the fourth overall meeting between Green Bay and UND. Green Bay leads the series 3-0-0. This will be the third meeting in Green Bay, with the previous match being a 3-1 Phoenix victory in 2011.

Best of the Midwest
Senior goalkeeper Kristi Hestdalen was named Tuesday to the 2014 Women’s Premier Soccer League 2014 All Stars: Midwest-Central region team.  The team consists of 21 student-athletes who were nominated by their respective team’s head coach. Each WPSL team was given the opportunity to select at least one player for the All-Star teams. Kristi was joined by the University of Minnesota’s Olivia Schultz as players chosen by the Minnesota Twinstars of the WPSL.

Hello, my name is
A total of 11 new faces will be joining UND this season, as the team welcomes 11 freshmen.

Always Remember the First
North Dakota picked up their first ever Big Sky Conference win on Oct. 13, 2013 in a 3-1 win over Eastern Washington.

Double Trouble
UND doubled its goals scored in conference play last season from 2012, and its goals allowed in conference action also reduced drastically, from 29 in 2012 to 18 in 2013.

Holy Moly, What A Goalie
Senior goalkeeper Kristi Hestdalen led the Big Sky in saves in 2013 and set a new UND single-season record with her 131 saves. She was also named as an honorable mention to the All-Big Sky Conference Team and is now the UND all-time saves leader with 340 career saves.

O Captain, My Captain!
Head Coach Matt Kellogg announced that senior Juliette Austin, as well as juniors, Caitlin Dahl and Asia Laudal will serve as team captains for the 2014 season.

Returning Offense
UND returns 80 percent of its goals (13-of-15) and 75 percent of its assists (6-of-8) from the 2013 season. Sophomore Zoe Foster led the team last season with four goals and one assist.
