BOSTON, Mass.—UMass Boston women's soccer is set to host their most home games since the 2014 season this fall, as the Beacons look to build upon their 2018 success.
The Beacons will host nine home games, including five games at James Cotter Field in the month of October.
Head coach Amy Zombeck's squad will kick off their season on Friday August 30, when they travel to Smith College for a 5 p.m. kickoff. The Beacons will play their home opener less than 24 hours later, when they welcome the Wentworth Institute of Technology Leopards to James Cotter Field at 4 p.m. on August 31.
The Beacons will then take to the road for a season-high four-game road trip. UMass Boston's biggest test of the trip will be on Tuesday April 10, when they take on rival Babson College at 4 p.m. UMass Boston is 0-4-1 against the Beavers, but fell by a 2-1 score in last year's thrilling matchup in Boston.
After starting the year with seven-straight non-conference tilts, UMass Boston will kick off their Little East Conference schedule on Saturday September 21 at 2 p.m. The Beacons will play Castleton University-in a rematch of last year's LEC Quarterfinals (UMass Boston 1-0).
UMass Boston will host their Senior Day game on Saturday October 26, when they take on Keene State College at 4 p.m.
After a midweek home game against Bridgewater State University, the Beacons will travel to take on Western Connecticut State University on Saturday, November 2 at 11 a.m. The regular-season finale will be a rematch of last year's LEC Championship Game, in which the Colonials defeated the Beacons 2-0.
