BUENA VISTA, Va. The 2010 home openers for both Southern Virginia Football and Southern Virginia Women's Soccer kick off tonight, and all SVU fans can tune in for webcasting of both games. Fans can come to the SVU website and click audio for the webcasting.
The first game of the double-header starts at 4:30 pm, when the women's soccer team hosts South Carolina State. The Knights are looking to rebound from a tough loss in their opening game, and the encounter is an historic one. SCSU will be the first ever NCAA D.I team to be hosted by Southern Virginia Women's Soccer. The Knights lost a hard-fought match last year, 3-0, and are looking for a home field advantage to record a win over the visiting Bulldogs.
Southern Virginia Football goes in to its home opener with a large amount of optimism. A challenging opener, has pushed the knights to hard work in anticipation of the game against the Highlanders. A successful game last year on Senior Day, has given Head Coach DeLane Fitzgerald a confidence that the team can perform, and get to winning ways early on in the season. SVU will host the game at Parry McCluer High School at 7:30 pm.
