The Men have 4 league matches (SMU, MSU, UD, ASU) and 1 friendly against Baylor. The ladies have league matches against Rice and Sam Houston, and I'm trying to get another match with anyone, hence the 7 or 8 games.
The week began shaky, with the fields closed due to the rain that fell Sunday. Wednesday's practice was good and we had a special Friday practice which also was good. Next week will be another short week of practice, due to the fact that Monday we'll be observing Dr. Martin Luther King's Birthday, but will jump back in on Wednesday.
Next Saturday, the men play cross town rival Southern Methodist University at SMU. The match should kick off about 2:00pm and directions will be posted on this web site. If anything should change between now and Saturday, I will notify you via facebook and this web site.
SMU is or at least was a different team last fall, we'll have to wait and see what the spring brings, but they have one advantage, they are at home. They're big and they want to embarrass us, but as the match was played last fall. We can play with them, they only beat us by 2 points due to help from the referee, but we're wiser and smarter than last fall.
I expect this match to be a wide open, hard hitting, low scoring match with both clubs playing serious defense and gaps to exploit will be at a premium.
