Girls soccer | No. 3 Eagan slips past Lourdes (Thursday)

August 26, 2018 GMT

EAGAN — Lourdes made a game of it early against No. 3-ranked (Class AA) Eagan. But the Eagles weren’t able to sustain it as they lost 3-0 in the non-conference girls soccer opener.

Lauren Nichols was in net for Lourdes. She finished with 13 saves.

“I was very pleased with our play, coming out as strong as we did it against incredible competition from a very large school was excellent,” Eagles coach Sarah Groven said. “We played hard throughout the game I thought, but in the second half we weren’t able to keep up with some of their transitions.”

Groven said that Jade Einertson had a strong game for Lourdes, as did McKenna Chestolowski and Sarah Dravis.

“Defensively we were awesome despite the score,” Groven said.
