The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns women’s soccer team went 0-2 to kick off the Canada West season.
The Horns fell 3-1 to the Mount Royal Cougars Saturday and were blanked 2-0 by the Alberta Pandas Sunday in Edmonton.
On Saturday in Calgary, Lucy Mundy scored in the 46th minute to cut the Cougars lead to 2-1 after Mount Royal scored in the 26th and 35th minutes.
But the Cougars added an insurance marker six minutes later as Sydney Danielewicz scored all three Mount Royal goals.
The Pronghorns outshot the Cougars 11-9.
In her Pronghorn debut, Bridie Harding made six saves and Grace Taylor led Lethbridge with eight shot attempts, including three on goal.
On Sunday, the Pandas scored in the 39th and 62nd minutes to post the shutout win.
Alberta held the visitors to one shot on goal, firing 11 at Harding.
Munday led Lethbridge with three shot attempts.
The Pronghorns are back home this weekend for their home-opener and what will be a triple header at the University of Lethbridge Stadium.
The Horns host the MacEwan University Griffins (1-1) at noon, followed by the Pronghorns men’s team opening their season against Mount Royals at 2:15 p.m.
The Pronghorns women’s rugby team completes the day at 7 p.m. when they take on Pandas.
