If their first test against a Division I opponent is any indication, the UNO women's soccer team will do just fine. After a week of practice, the Mavs hooked up in an Aug. 13 exhibition with Missouri Valley Conference champion Creighton at Morrison Stadium across town.
The women's soccer team became the first UNO sport to compete in a Division I contest, falling 2-0 at Wisconsin-Green Bay Friday night. Hekla Palmadottir scored both goals for the Phoenix who outshot the Mavs 23-8 overall and 7-5 in shots on goal.
