Maverick Maniac's Musings

How does Oakland and Kansas City leaving affect Omaha’s Women’s Soccer Schedule?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jon Green @ 10:00 am

Omaha lost two conference games this year when Oakland and Kansas City left the Summit League. The Kansas City game was a home game scheduled for Sunday, October 20th. The Oakland game was a road game scheduled for Friday, October 25th. The fact that Omaha lost only one home game is a positive thing, if both of these had been scheduled at home it could have been a real big loss.

Additionally the home game was on a Sunday, so UNO doesn’t lose one of their big Friday night home games. That game also fell at the start of the school’s semester break, so players will have a chance to really have some extra free time during the nine days between the Denver game and the Fort Wayne game. There are some real positives from this I think.

The Mavericks have also added an exhibition game against Drake for Wednesday, August 15th. This will be their first home game in the new Caniglia Field and should be a good evening. Drake went 12-5-3 last year while finished 3rd in the Missouri Valley conference. They will be a good first test for UNO to start the year, a challenge but not an unbeatable opponent.

Here’s the updated schedule for the Mavericks. Season starts in just over two months!
