RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Louisiana Tech avoided turnovers all last season even while running their offense at a dizzyingly fast pace. The Bulldogs got a reminder Saturday of what can happen when they don’t protect the football.
Louisiana Tech lost four fumbles — half as many as it lost all of last season — in the season-opening 40-14 loss at North Carolina State. The first came at the goal line as the Bulldogs had put together their first good drive of the game, while another set up a touchdown for the Wolfpack that helped keep N.C. State in firm control all day.
The Louisiana Tech University Lady Techsters’ soccer team is in its second week of fall practice in preparation for their 2012 season opener this Saturday at home against Murray State starting at 1 p.m.
Week one was spent working primarily on physical conditioning and maintaining offensive positioning. The drills consisted of being able to time your runs to receive passes and keeping depth on the outside lines while possessing the ball.
