Women's soccer opens 2018 season with two games at home

WATERVILLE, Maine – The Colby College women’s soccer team will play local rival Thomas College at home in the season opener on Wednesday, Sept. 5, as part of a 14-game 2018 schedule.

The Mules play the opening two games under head coach Kristin Shaw at home, taking on Tufts University on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Colby hits the road for four straight games, including a NESCAC weekend at Trinity College on Saturday, Sept. 22, and then Connecticut College on Sunday.

The Mules then have an opportunity to play four straight home games, including two games over Family Homecoming Weekend at Colby. The Mules take on Wesleyan University on Saturday, Oct. 6, and then face Bowdoin College on Sunday.

Colby finishes the regular season with three of the final four games at home, but the Mules do avoid a long road trip by hosting Hamilton College this season on Saturday, Oct. 20. That game will be the team’s Senior Appreciation Day.
