Dates to Know

Sept. 15: A-10 opener vs. Dayton
Oct. 29: A-10 Tournament begins

An 18-game slate awaits the Davidson women’s soccer team this fall, coach Adam Denton announced Thursday.

After two early-August exhibition games (Longwood, Elon), the Wildcats will open the season Thursday, Aug. 18 at USC Upstate. That starts an eight-game non-conference schedule that precedes the 10-game Atlantic 10 Conference slate. 

“We have another challenging schedule this year, and we are excited to get our team together for the preseason,” said Denton. “In our non-conference schedule, we compete against teams from the Big South and Southern Conferences, which always give our team different challenges that will help in our preparation for the A-10 games.”

An Aug. 25 match with Gardner-Webb will serve as the home opener, and Senior Day follows on Sunday, Aug. 28 against Furman. In non-conference play, the Wildcats will also host Wofford and UNC Asheville and visit Presbyterian, Winthrop and Western Carolina.

The A-10 portion of the schedule begins Thursday Sept. 15 with a home game against Dayton. The Wildcats will then play three of their next four away from Alumni Stadium, beginning with a Sept. 18 date at UMass. With lengthy trips to St. Bonaventure and conference newcomer Loyola Chicago soon to follow, Denton said the conference slate will be as much a mental test as it is a physical one.

“That is part of the challenge of competing at this level, and we have to be ready from the start,” said Denton. “We are really looking forward to the season and can’t wait to get started.”

Also in league play, the Wildcats will host Rhode Island, George Washington, Fordham and Richmond and visit Duquesne and La Salle.

The A-10 Tournament begins Saturday, Oct. 29, with the league final set for Sunday, Nov. 6.
