    Northwestern women's soccer opened exhibition play Monday afternoon with a 2-1 loss to Milwaukee at Lakeside Field. The early first match came after just six training sessions for the 'Cats, who opened their fall camp last Friday.

    Despite the result on the field, head coach Stephanie Foster said she was pleased with the effort she saw from her team.

    "I saw lots of positive and promising things," Foster said. "We played a lot of people and even though we're missing a few key members of our lineup right now this was a good early first look. I'm feeling like good things are emerging and it's only the fourth day of camp."

    Katie Landgrebe, a freshman from the Cincinnati suburb of Madeira, Ohio, scored Northwestern's lone goal midway through the second half. Nicole Duller sent a long pass up the middle of the field that found Landgrebe at the top of the box, and the newcomer finished with a beautiful shot from there.

    Landgrebe was a 2010 NSCAA High School All-American and is a proven scorer -- she holds the Madeira High career record with 79 goals scored.

    She's one of 10 newcomers to the Northwestern roster this fall, the majority of whom saw action in Monday's exhibition. Foster also noted the effort of fellow freshmen Sami Schrakamp (Danville, Calif./Monte Vista) and Georgia Waddle (Lake Forest, Ill./Lake Forest) after the contest.

    Monday's exhibition is the first of two for Northwestern this fall. The Wildcats officially open the 2011 season at Marquette on Aug. 21 and will host the Lakeside Classic on Aug. 26 and 28.
