LOS ANGELES - The 2013 LMU men's soccer schedule has been announced, featuring 10 home dates on the 20-match slate.
The Lions start things off with an exhibition match on Saturday, Aug. 26, hosting Cal State Northridge in an exhibition match on Sullivan Field. Five days later, on Aug. 30, the regular season begins at home against Florida International.
LMU then hits the road for a three-match swing beginning Sept. 6 at Cal State Fullerton. Following an East Coast swing that will take the squad to Colgate (Sept. 13) and Cornell (Cornell), LMU returns home to host Sacramento State (Sept. 20) and UC Davis (Sept. 22).
The seven-match non-conference portion of the schedule concludes with a Sunday, Sept. 29 meeting at perennial national power UC Santa Barbara.
West Coast Conference home-and-home action begins Wednesday, Oct. 2 when the Lions travel to 2012 NCAA Tournament quarterfinalist San Diego. Home matches during the WCC slate are Oct. 6 versus Santa Clara, Oct. 18 versus Saint Mary's, Oct. 20 versus San Francisco, Nov. 8 versus Portland, Nov. 10 versus Gonzaga and Nov. 13 versus San Diego.
