Men’s Soccer Releases 2017 Schedule

By Nick Porter

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Jan-Willem Boer, Southern Virginia University's newly announced head men's soccer coach, today released the team's fall 2017 schedule.

"We should be able to beat many of the teams we played well last season," Coach Boer said. "Our conference schedule is a tough schedule, and we play Washington & Lee, who was ranked in the top 25 last year. I hope to be competitive this season."

The Knights will kick off their season on September 1 as they host Ferrum College. Southern Virginia beat the Panthers 1-0 in their last meeting in 2015.

On September 12, the Southern Virginia will host neighboring Washington & Lee at 7:30 p.m.

Capital Athletic Conference play begins on September 23 as the Knights host Salisbury under the lights. A pair of conference road games will lead into a four-game conference home stand, beginning in the homecoming game on October 7.

The home season will conclude on October 18, against Marymount. The Knights will end the regular season on November 2 at Gallaudet.
