UHV Soccer Hopes To Play Saturday

Posted: Updated:


UHV soccer, hoping that this weekend will be the one where they get to play games.
The Jaguar men and women have had three straight non-conference games per team rained out at the UHV Cage over the past two weekends. They have not played games since they were in Oklahoma on September 3. Their next games at the Cage are now conference games. The Jaguars told me how frustrated they were with waiting. Said midfielder Brody Patience, "For the returners, we're quite used to it after the hurricane last year took 18 days away from our pre-season. It's just making the most of the time on the pitch when we're here today, which has been nice. We've had quite a few days this week to practice." Said center defender Hayden Janner, "It's been incredibly frustrating. We've been wanting to practice on our fields and it's flooded. We're getting our fitness in other ways but we're really itching to get back out on the field."
UHV soccer is scheduled to start Red River Conference play at the Cage this Saturday. The Jaguars host the University Of St. Thomas Saturday afternoon starting at one.


The U.S. women's national team has named a 20-player roster for the upcoming CONCACAF championship, which serves as qualifying for next year's World Cup in France.
    
This will be the fourth qualifying tournament for Carli Lloyd, who scored a hat trick in the team's victory over Japan in the 2015 World Cup final. She is among 11 players on the current roster who were on the team that won the title.
    
The top three finishers in next month's tournament earn the confederation's berths at the 2019 World Cup. A fourth team will go to a playoff for a spot.
    
The United States opens the tournament on Oct. 4 against Mexico in North Carolina. The championship match is set for Oct. 17 in Frisco, Texas.
    
The roster includes 21-year-old UCLA defender Hailie Mace, who has two national team appearances and is the only college player included by coach Jill Ellis for qualifying.
