LOS ANGELES - Second year head coach Michelle Myers has announced the 2013 LMU women's soccer schedule, which features eight match-ups with reigning NCAA Tournament qualifiers as well as at least one televised match to go along with 10 total home dates.
The 20-match slate kicks off on Friday, Aug. 23 when the Lions travel to Big West member Cal Poly for a 7 p.m. start.
LMU's first match at Sullivan Field is Sunday, Aug. 25 versus Northeastern. That begins a three-match home swing which includes Montana (Aug. 30) and UC Santa Barbara (Sept. 1).
The Lions then hit the road for four straight matches, beginning at 2012 NCAA Tournament Final Four qualifier Stanford on Friday, Sept. 6 at 6 p.m. That match will also be broadcast live on the Pac-12 Network. A meeting with 2012 NCAA Tournament qualifier Long Beach State is next (Sept. 8), followed by Cal State Fullerton (Sept. 13) and USC (Sept. 15).
A quick homestand features UC Irvine on Sept. 20 and 2012 NCAA Tournament quarterfinalist UCLA on Sept. 22. LMU then closes out non-conference play at 2012 NCAA Tournament qualifier Cal State Northridge on Sept. 27.
The rigorous nine-match West Coast Conference slate begins with a homestand against Portland (Oct. 11) and Gonzaga (Oct. 13). The Lions will be on the road for WCC matches against San Diego (Oct. 17), BYU (Oct. 19), Santa Clara (Nov. 1) and San Francisco (Nov. 3). They will host Saint Mary's (Oct. 25), new member Pacific (Oct. 27) and PCH Cup rival Pepperdine (Nov. 9).
The WCC sent four teams to the NCAA Tournament last fall including BYU (quarterfinals), Portland (second round), Pepperdine (first round) and Santa Clara (second round). The Lions, who went 9-8-2 overall, finished 3-5-0 in league play, good for sixth place.
