WVU hosts Sooners in crucial series

(Continued)

MORGANTOWN — oooooo

West Virginia’s women’s soccer team will play a schedule that includes seven opponents that appeared in last year’s NCAA Tournament — Baylor, Central Michigan, Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, Penn State and Texas Tech.

“The 2013 schedule is challenging, but one that we are excited about,” says coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “Our non-conference opponents are highlighted by last year’s national finalists in North Carolina and Penn State. And our conference schedule includes four home games and four road trips to Big 12 schools.”

West Virginia will play 10 matches this fall at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium, in addition to an exhibition match against Rutgers on Aug. 13.

The Mountaineers will take to the road for eight contests, including the season opener on Aug. 23 at Penn State — last year’s national runner-up. WVU also will square off against Syracuse on Aug. 25 to close out the weekend as part of the Penn State Invitational.

WVU’s home opener is scheduled for Aug. 30 against Central Michigan.
