Women's Soccer Announces 2018 Schedule

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Coming off a trip to the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Santa Clara women's soccer released its 2018 schedule on Monday. The Broncos will play 11 games at Stevens Stadium and once again face a difficult slate of games, with eight matches against 2017 NCAA Tournament teams.

"Our schedule in 2018 is similar to ones we've tried to put together in past years," Santa Clara head coach Jerry Smith said. "We have eight tournament teams on our schedule and some great home games as well as some great local away games. It's a schedule that's going to be very challenging. We need the best teams to show us where we have weaknesses so we have some time to work on them before the NCAA Tournament. We look forward to the challenge."

Fans first chance to see the team will be Aug. 11 when the Broncos host their Red & White Scrimmage at Stevens Stadium at 7:30 p.m.

The regular season kicks-off Aug. 17 at local rival San Jose State. The home-opener will be against Cal Aug. 20 and be followed by two more at home against North Texas and Kansas State
