Conference expectations

The Loggers are predicted to place third in the Northwest Conference, according to the league's preseason poll of NWC head coaches. Whitworth is favored to win its fourth straight league title, and Pacific Lutheran is expected to place second. The Loggers will rely on a balanced blend of youth and upperclassmen to exceed expectations.


Scouting EOU

The Mountaineers are 2-0 in the early going this season. They beat Embry-Riddle (Ariz.) in overtime, 3-2, to open the season. Most recently, EOU topped NWC member Whitman, 2-1, on Friday. The Mountaineers totaled 19 shots between the two games, but they have allowed 27. Julian Wells leads the team with three points, all coming off of assists.


Looking ahead

The Loggers' matchup against EOU is the first of three games this week. Puget Sound hosts Wheaton (Ill.) on Friday, Sept. 8, and then hosts Texas-Tyler, Sept. 9. Both games are on East Field at 4:30 p.m.
