Soccer opens up, August 19th at home vs Oklahoma. Hearing that the team overall is in best preseason condition in at least the last 4 seasons. Practice begins next week. First exhibition is August 12th. Top non-conference games are opener vs Oklahoma then @TCU.
The game at Jackson St seems weird, do they have a good program or something? Of course when they play in Fort Worth I will be out of town.
They went 6-4 in the spring. Should be a road W for the Coogs. Probably a filler game on the Rice weekend. Not sure.
This headline made me laugh.
Looks like a big game for the futbol femmes tonight. Apparently, the only once beaten soccer team (6-1-1), opens conference play against the 14th ranked Mousketeers of UCF. Coogs host at Carl Lewis field. Game time 7 pm. Available on ESPN+.
If the Annette Funicellos really are the 14th best side in the nation, then things look positive for the soccer season. Well deserved 1 - 0 win.
The program is back. Good job coaches and players!
Women beat Arkansas Pine Bluff 8-1 last Friday.
UCF had beaten OleMiss, Penn State, Florida, and Texas coming into that match. Sitting at 9-1-1 now, it gets real. Tomorrow night they play at USF, then Sunday at #8 TCU, then play at #24 SMU next Thursday. If they can get 1 victory in those 3, preferably USF or SMU, they can be 10-3-1 and 2-1-0 in conference. That would exceed expectations greatly. As the announcer said on air last week, “Coach Diego program has turned from rebuilding to reloading”. There are alot of quality players getting lower minutes simply because the cupboard is full. That’s a fantastic problem as they have been able to slowly bring along fresh faces instead of throwing them into the fire from the beginning.
Another additional benefit of the espn+ deal. Really enjoying following soccer and volleyball. Both teams vastly improved!
USF has 89th minute penalty kick to tie the Coogs 1-1. No scoring in two ot’s. Would have been a nice one to hold on to, but will still take a road tie.
Coogs win a HUGE one at SMU this evening! Looking good and so fun to watch! Way to go Coach and girls!!!
Big win. Road conference wins are gold. Go ladies!
Guessing the replay will be on espn+. Looking forward to the watch. Very nice road win!
