Women's Soccer Announces 2012 Schedule

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – MIT women's soccer team will open its season by playing three games in five days, the first taking place on Friday, August 31 at 4:00 p.m. at home against Brandeis. The next day, the Engineers will remain at home to face Simmons before heading to Worcester, Mass. for a game against Worcester State on Sept. 4.

On Sept. 7, the Engineers will take part in the Valiant Classic in Purchase, N.Y. and will square off against Eastern Connecticut before playing host Manhattanville on Sept. 9. This is the first time the Cardinal and Gray will face either squad.

MIT then travels to Tufts (Sept. 12) before returning home to face NEWMAC foe Babson (Sept. 15) and Roger Williams (Sept. 18). The Engineers make two trips to Worcester in the span of a week as they visit league rivals Clark (Sept. 22) and WPI (Sept. 29). In between key NEWMAC games, MIT hosts local rival Lesley on Sept. 25.

Six of MIT's seven games in October will be against conference opponents. Following a pair of home tilts with Wellesley (Oct. 2) and Mount Holyoke (Oct. 6), the Engineers hit the road to face Husson (Oct. 9) for their final non-conference match-up of the season. The Cardinal and Gray alternate home and away games down the stretch, hosting Springfield (Oct. 13) and Coast Guard (Oct. 20) while visiting Wheaton (Oct. 16) and Smith (Oct. 27).

The first round of the NEWMAC tournament will begin on Oct. 30 and concludes on Nov. 4.
