SALT LAKE CITY – The Westminster College women’s soccer team is back at Dumke Field this weekend for a pair of contests. Westminster will welcome College of Idaho to Salt Lake City on Friday for a 5:30 p.m. game and then open Frontier Conference play against Great Falls (Mont.) on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Both games will be streamed live on Griffins TV and be carried on Comcast 6 in northern Utah. Live stats will also be available for both games. Links for the live features can be found in the calendar section of Westminster's athletic website.
