Davidson women’s soccer has rolled out its 2018 schedule.
The Wildcats, who went 2-14-3 in 2017, will play nine home games at Alumni Stadium and a pair of teams that advanced to last year’s NCAA tournament.
“We are really looking forward to this year’s schedule,” said Wildcats coach Adam Denton, who is entering his second year at the helm of the program. “Our non-conference games allow us to play nine teams from five different conferences that will provide great competition and different challenges in each game. These games will help in our preparation for A-10 play, which always provides very tough competition in every game.”
Davidson will host Campbell in its lone exhibition contest Aug. 11, followed the next weekend with home dates against Coastal Carolina Aug. 17 and USC Upstate Aug. 20.
The following weekend, the Wildcats travel to Garner-Webb Aug. 24 and East Carolina on Aug. 26. Davidson’s non-conference continues with a home game against Mercer on Aug. 31, before three of the next four games on the road at George Southern (Sept. 2), Elon (Sept. 14) and Western Carolina (Sept. 16).
The lone home game during that stretch will be against UNC Greensboro, which won last year’s Southern Conference championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
Davidson opens Atlantic 10 play Sept. 20, against regular season and tournament champion La Salle at home before traveling to league power St Louis Sept. 23.
“Every game in the A-10 is a battle,” Denton said. “We start our league games against the top two teams from last year and both teams are ranked around the top-50 RPI. We have to be ready and our non-conference schedule is key in our preparation. We are all excited and looking forward to the challenge.”
Over the next three weekends, Davidson hosts Fordham, Dayton, and UMass, and road dates at George Mason, VCU and Duquesne. The regular season’s final week includes a game at George Washington Oct. 18, followed by the home finale against Richmond on Oct 21.
The league’s top four team will host the A-10 quarterfinals on Oct. 28. The semifinals and championship game will be played at a neutral site to be determined.
