All About The Rebels
Scouting Portland State
The Vikings have started out the season at 0-2, though it was against tough competition with a home loss to No. 14 Marquette 3-2, and a 3-0 setback at Oregon to begin the year. Despite losing its top four scorers from a year ago, Portland State was still the preseason favorite to win the Big Sky. The top returning scorer from 2012, Cori Bianchini, scored one of the team's two goals this season, while a pair of players have each played one full game in goal, Angela Haluska and Caitlin Plese.
