Soccer Opens 2017 Season With Beach Futbol Club Exhibition

Aug. 4, 2017

Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State women's soccer opens the 2017-18 campaign for the Beach this Sunday, as the team hosts a preseason scrimmage with Beach FC at George Allen Field at 5 p.m.

Admission is free to the scrimmage where fans can get their first look at the 2017 team, who are looking to make their third straight NCAA Tournament appearance.

Big West Offensive Player of the Year Ashley Gonzales returns for Long Beach State, as does Big West Freshman of the Year Chloe Froment. Both players earned All-Big West honors one season ago, as did two other returners in Kaitlin Fregulia and Dana Fujikuni.

That core will be joined by an outstanding recruiting class and a number of Division I transfers as the Beach will once again play a tremendous non-conference schedule before challenging for the Big West title.

After Sunday's scrimmage, the Beach will then play an intrasquad scrimmage on Wednesday, August 9. The preseason then concludes as Long Beach State welcomes USC to George Allen Field on Sunday, August 13 for an exhibition beginning at 6 p.m.
