THE BASICS:

The Saint Leo women's soccer team started their season off with a statement as the Lions trounced visiting Webber International 10-2 on Sunday afternoon.

The Lions jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but defensive miscues by a revamped Saint Leo back line allowed Webber to knot the score on goals scored just a minute apart. The end of the first half and all of the second saw Saint Leo score eight unanswered goals in an offensive show of strength.
