Soccer opens SCAC play out west this weekend

BIRMINGHAM. Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern Soccer teams will be on the road out west this weekend as they travel to Colorado and Texas for a pair of SCAC contests.  First, the men head out to Colorado Springs on Friday to take on the Tigers of Colorado College while the women will be at the University of Dallas for a non-conference match.  Then, on Sunday the teams will both travel to Sherman, Texas to face the Austin College Roos.  The matches are BSC’s first conference games of the season.

The men will open up their conference schedule at Colorado College at 4:00 p.m. MST (5:00 p.m. CST).  The Panthers will look to get back on the winning side of things after a tough non-conference schedule.   BSC won their game with the Tigers last year, but we will have to wait and see if they can pull that streak out for another year. 

The women’s team will be in Dallas on Friday to take on the University of Dallas at 4:00 p.m.  This will be the final match before their conference opener on Sunday.  The ladies are coming off a 0-1 loss at Greensboro College from a week ago.

On Sunday, both teams will converge in Sherman, Texas for a SCAC double-header with Austin College.  The men will go at noon with the women’s match following around 2:00 p.m.  You can follow all the action in Colorado Springs online at the following links:
