BALTIMORE - UMBC women's soccer head coach Vanessa Mann has released the team's slate for the upcoming 2019 season. The schedule features seven home games to be played at Retriever Soccer Park.
After taking on Rider in a preseason scrimmage on August 10 at Retriever Soccer Park, the season begins on August 22 as the Retrievers travel to NJIT to take on Highlanders before opening a two-game homestand against St. Francis (Aug. 25) and Temple (Aug. 29).
UMBC will take to the road for four-straight games as they battle The Mount on September 1 and Towson on September 5. The Retrievers travel to Pennsylvania to take on Lehigh (Sept. 13) and Virginia to face Longwood (Sept. 15) before returning home to RSP for a matchup against George Washington on September 19.
The squad will close out September by opening up America East play, welcoming New Hampshire (Sept. 22) and defending conference champs UAlbany (Sept. 29).
October begins on the road as the Retrievers take on Stony Brook (Oct. 3) and UMass Lowell (Oct.) before breaking conference play to face American (Oct. 9). The team makes a stop at Retriever Soccer Park on October 13 to take on Vermont before heading back out on the road to face Maine on October. 20.
The season comes to end as the Retrievers host Senior Day against Hartford on October 27, before closing out the year on the road against Binghamton on October 31.
The America East championships will be held at the higher seeds, with the dates being released at a later time.
"Our non-conference schedule this fall is incredibly competitive and will allow our women to build off of a successful competitive spring. Each of these teams will provide a different look for us as we prepare for our America East Conference games. We have laid a foundation of how we want to compete on the field, in the classroom and within the community over the last 18 months and are excited for our incoming freshmen class to join us on this journey."
