UHV Soccer Friday Home Games Canceled

Posted: Updated:

Too wet for UHV soccer's first home games of the season Friday. Today’s University of Houston-Victoria men’s and women’s soccer matches against Mid-America Christian University have been cancelled due to wet playing conditions.

The non-conference games will not be rescheduled.

The Jaguars are scheduled to host Texas Wesleyan University on Sunday at 1 and 3:30 p.m., but no decision on those games has been made at this time. 

The University of Houston-Victoria soccer program will hold open student tryouts Monday, Sept. 10, at the UHV soccer practice field located on the UHV campus.

 

Women's tryouts will be from 1 to 3 p.m., while men's tryouts will be from 3 to 5 p.m. This will be the only opportunity for open tryouts during the fall semester.

 

Those trying out must be enrolled in 12 hours at UHV and must complete a waiver form prior to trying out. To find a copy of the wavier click here: /d/2017-18/UHV_SOCCER_ATHLETIC_RELEASE.pdf


    
For English soccer, the first two-week international period of the new season often doubles as the next phase of a post-mortem into the national team's failings at a recent tournament.
    
Not so much this time.
    
As the squad gathered at its St. George's Park training base this week ahead of matches against Spain and Switzerland, it was a chance for the players to reminisce about their journey to the World Cup semifinals during a summer when the English fell back in love with their vibrant team.
    
Yet, despite all the euphoria, soccer didn't come home and the wait for a first international title since 1966 goes on.
    
England will do well to address the reasons behind the semifinal loss to Croatia, particularly the flaws in its midfield, rather than bask in its unlikely progress to the last four in Russia.
