LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, Ga.- With the start of the 2012 season just a few weeks away, the Covenant College men's and women's soccer teams released their 2012 schedules on Saturday to reveal a string of regular season fixtures that will run from August 31 to October 30.
The Scots and Lady Scots will begin their journeys with a trip to NCAA Division III powerhouse Messiah on August 31, as they look to upset a program that has won eight men's and three women's national championships since the 2000 season.
The men's team will then remain on the road for games against Franklin & Marshall, Centre College, Spalding University, and Berry College before returning to Scotland Yard to battle Truett-McConnell on September 15 for the home-opener. Following the opener, the Scots play a further five games at home with matches against Emory & Henry, Greenville, LaGrange, Oglethorpe, and Huntingdon taking place from September 19-29.
The Lady Scots will face a much friendlier home schedule in the opening weeks of the season, returning home from the away matches against Messiah and Franklin & Marshall to face Agness Scott, Pikeville, Sewanee, Huntingdon, and Greenville in consecutive home games at Scotland Yard from September 5 through 21.
This year's homecoming is scheduled for October 6, as the Scots and Lady Scots square off against local foe Tennessee Temple at 6:30 and 4:30 P.M., respectively. Should either team advance to the NCCAA Mid-East Region Tournament, the matches will take place on November 16 and 17 at the location of the highest seed.
