LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Head coach Pete Cuadrado and the University of Wyoming women’s soccer team announced the upcoming 2014 season schedule on Thursday. The Cowgirls are set to play six home matches at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex, five of which are Mountain West contests.
The Cowgirls begin with a road exhibition game against Colorado School of Mines on Aug. 16 in Golden, Colo. Wyoming will then kick off the non-conference portion of its slate, which features seven contests versus squads from five different conferences. The regular season will begin Aug. 22, with a 7 p.m. game against Kansas in Lawrence, Kan. It will be the first matchup between the schools since 1999.
On Aug. 24, UW will play its home opener against Big Sky Conference member, Montana. Kickoff for Wyoming’s lone non-conference home match is set for 1 p.m. From there, the Cowgirls will play the next six games on the road, starting with two other Big Sky Conference members. UW meets Idaho State on Aug. 29 and Weber State on Aug. 31. On Sept. 5, Wyoming will once again hit the road for a 7:30 p.m. match with Utah Valley.
The following weekend sends the Cowgirls to Vermillion, S.D., for a Sept. 12 game at South Dakota before the first-ever contest with Morehead State on Sept. 14 in Morehead, Ky. Sept. 19 marks the final non-conference game for the Cowgirls, as they’ll travel to Greeley, Colo., to face Front Range Derby rival Northern Colorado.
UW’s 11-game Mountain West conference slate will begin Sept. 26, playing host to Nevada at the Louis S.
