The 2012 Men’s Soccer schedule has been released. The Tiger’s will face some familiar competition as well as others they have never before played. The Tigers will have ten home games in the 2012 season and eight away matches regular season games. Some of the similar faces they will see at home are NCCAA Kuyper College, Maranatha Baptist, Kentucky Christian, and Northalnd International University. The Tigers will also face Rochester College (USCAA/NAIA), Finlandia University (NCAA III) at home on Velting Field. The Tigers will travel and face new opposition such as Purdue University Calumet (NAIA), Robert Morris Lake County (USCAA/NAIA), Appalachian Bible College (NCCAA) in West Virginia, Lincoln Christian College in Lincoln Illinois, and Emmaus Bible College in Dubuque Iowa, and play Robert Morris Springfield (USCAA) at home. “It is an interesting schedule in that we will get the opportunity to go places we have not gone before and face competition we have not played before. The trips to West Virginia and Iowa will be exciting travel opportunities. We also have a good amount of home games this year which will be nice coming off of last years season where it seemed we were on road trips most of the year. The end part of the schedule will be tough with so many games close together. I know the guys will be excited about the challenges of quality competition and eagerness to get the season started”, said Head Coach Dustin Buchanan.
