Mountaineers Look To Bounce Back in Non-Conference Play

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Aug. 23, 2021) – The No. 12-ranked West Virginia women’s soccer team moves past their most recent loss against No. 4 Virginia Cavaliers and prepares for their next non-conference games later this week.

West Virginia moves onto two non-conference games one being on Friday and the other on Sunday.

“The next two competitions we know each team will present us with different shapes, different problems, different opportunities so we’re looking forward to getting back at it and getting a little bit better after the Virginia game” said WVU head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown.

Izzo-Brown spoke very highly of her athletes and is ready to see what her team does against non-conference teams.

The Mountaineers’ will be traveling to Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, where their next game will be held at the Emmitt Field at Holmes Stadium at 7 p.m ET. The Bucknell Bisons’ have an overall stat of 1-0-1, where their most recent game ended in a tie against Towson.

Later this week on Sunday, the Mountaineers’ will be making their way back to their home stadium where they will be playing against Duquesne. West Virginia will play against Duquesne at the Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium at 5 p.m ET.

Taking a look at Duquesne’s overall stat for this year is a 1-0 win against SFU.

Both upcoming teams are very equally matched to the Mountaineers’.

Izzo-Brown wants a variety of teams to play against to ensure her team has a good year.

“We want to be playing our best soccer at the end of the year and ready for conference play,” Izzo-Brown said. “So we definitely want to push like you said a variety of teams in front of us that will present different problems and just see how the kids respond.”
