EAST LANSING, Mich. - -- Michigan State heads to Orono, Maine this weekend to take on Boston College and Maine in its first regular-season games. First up, the Spartans will take on the Boston Eagles on Friday, August 24, at 1 p.m. Following, they will play the Black Bears on Sunday, August 26, at 12 p.m.
“Molly Cassidy and Sierra Patton shared time in goal last weekend and both were solid players,” said head coach Helen Knull. “The backfield gave a solid contribution and was great at rotating while maintaining and executing the game plan. We are working on our attacking and off-ball movement for the midfield and forwards.
“The Michigan game served as a great way to work out the jitters of the first game of the year,” said Knull. “I think we are prepared as a team for the opening weekend as well as excited to compete. Last weekend gave us a chance to review game film as a team and individually and refine on our technique. We have been focusing on making adjustments from last weekend to make sure we are strong and ready for the upcoming games.”

Looking at the Black Bears of Maine
Maine has a large freshman class this year and could be a very different team compared to the one the Spartans faced last year.
