Pilots Ready for 2012 Soccer Season
August 08, 2012
SHREVEPORT, La. - Soccer season is just around the corner for the LSU Shreveport Soccer program as pre-season practice has begun. The men's and women's soccer teams began two-a-day practices less than a week ago as they prepare to open the 2012 season.
The LSUS men's soccer team will meet Mountain View on Saturday, August 18, in an Exhibition game before beginning their 18-game schedule that will begin on Thursday, August 23, with a 7 p.m. match at the University of Texas-Dallas. The Pilots will defend the Mayor's Cup as they battle the Centenary Gents at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 27, at Lee Hedges Stadium. All proceeds from the cross-town rivalry match will benefit the March of Dimes.
The Pilot's schedule consists of more road games than at home with only seven games at The Swamp, one at Lee Hedges Stadium, and 10 contests on the road. They open the RRAC schedule on Thursday, September 20, at Huston-Tillotson in Austin at 1 p.m. after just missing out on making the RRAC Tournament last season.
