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.
There is no coverage scheduled for Friday’s game at Chicago State. Live stats for Sunday’s game at Green Bay can be found at GreenBayPhoenix.com. Live video can also be found at HorizonLeague.org.

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.
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.
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.
