NU soccer drops home opener

The Nebraska soccer team outshot the Drake Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon at the Abbott Sports Complex, 13-8, but came up empty handed in the Huskers home opener, losing 1-0 to the Drake Bulldogs. Drake goalie Kalena Litch came up big with seven saves.

DU’s Ashlie Stokes broke the scoreless tie at 65:22 when her shot from 30-yards out hit the crossbar and dropped behind NU goalie Emma Stevens. Freshman Katie Kraeutner was robbed of her first career goal, but Litch made a diving stop.

The Huskers will host next weekend’s Husker Classic. NU plays Virginia Tech on Friday, Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. and New Mexico on Sun., Aug. 26 at 1 p.m. Iowa State will also be in Lincoln for the Husker Classic, but will not play Nebraska.
