Women's Soccer Team To Play First Two Home Games At Echles Field
Aug. 26, 2003
Memphis, Tenn.-- - The University of Memphis women's soccer team will now open its 2003 regular season at Echles Field, the team's on-campus facility, Friday, at 7 p.m., with a match against Mississippi State. The Lady Tigers and Bulldogs were originally scheduled to play at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex in Collierville, but improvements to the stadium field at the complex are still on-going.
The Lady Tigers have played Mississippi State each season of the program's existence and the series is currently even at 3-3-2. The last two matches between the schools have gone into overtime with each team winning on its home turf. Memphis won last year's meeting 3-2 on a goal by freshman Nicky McLeod just 31 seconds into overtime.
The Lady Tigers match with Southeast Missouri State on Tuesday, Sept. 7, has also been switched to Echles Field from the MRSC. There are no other schedule changes at this time and the stadium field at the MRSC expects to be ready for the Lady Tigers to open C-USA play against DePaul on Sept. 26.
