Women’s soccer hosts Division I weekend

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The BSC women’s soccer program will open their 2008 home schedule this weekend with a pair of Division I opponents.  First up for the Panthers is a Friday night match with the, in-state, Alabama State Hornets at 7:00 p.m.  Closing out the weekend series will be a 1:00 p.m. match on Sunday with the Georgia State Panthers.

Coach Benji Watson’s team is looking to right the ship after two heart-breaking matches in Memphis last weekend.  BSC tied UT-Dallas last Friday after both teams found themselves unable to put the ball in the net after two overtime periods.  Then, on Sunday, Texas Lutheran defeated the Panthers 2-1 in another overtime game.

These games are the only chance you will have to see the Panthers at home before they start SCAC conference play when they host Centre College on October 3rd, so come out to the Soccer Park at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday to support your Panthers.  If you are unable to attend the matches in person, then you can follow all the action on BSCSports.net at http://sidearmstats.com/bsc/wsoc
