WASHINGTON — American University men's soccer will have a tough task at hand for the 2019 schedule, as announced by head coach Zach Samol on Monday.
The Eagles are set to play 10 of 17 games away from Reeves Field, including a trip out to California.
"We feel this is another challenging schedule that's been put together and it will prepare us well for the Patriot League," said Samol. "This team, in particular, will have to discover our road identity and find ways to get results away from home."
AU will open the season across the river at George Mason for the annual Kuykenstrong DC College Cup on August 30. American defeated the Patriots in a come-from-behind 2-1 victory last season at Reeves Field.
American will welcome Coach Samol to his new pitch on September 2 for a Labor Day matinee against local foe George Washington. Students will have an opportunity to watch the Eagles in the first Reeves Blue Out day.
The Eagles will then hit the road for four games in two different states. The road swing starts in North Carolina with American meeting Campbell (Sept. 6) and Appalachian State (Sept. 8). The following weekend, the Eagles will ascend to the friendly skies for a cross-country trip to meet California on Sept. 13 and Stanford on Sept. 15.
AU will have two more non-league games during Patriot League play with a road contest at Mount St. Mary's on October 15 and a home match against West Virginia on Oct. 22.
PL play starts on Sept 21 with a home match against Lehigh. The Eagles will look to avenge last season's quarterfinal defeat to Colgate on Oct. 26 at Reeves and then finish up the home schedule the following weekend against Army West Point on November 2.
The regular-season concludes at Loyola Maryland on Nov. 6.
The Patriot League Tournament begins on Nov. 9 with the quarterfinal round and concludes on Nov. 16 with the league Championship.
