They started the tournament Friday by tieing Eureka (Mo.) 0-0. However, they lost 1-4 to Summit (Mo.) on Saturday. “Out of state tournaments give us an opportunity to have some bonding time as a team, while also improving our soccer and trying new things in out of conference games that aren’t quite as important as DVC games,” senior defender Megan Morris said.
