CARLINVILLE, Ill. – The men's soccer team will travel to Carlinville, Ill. to face NCAA Division III opponents Blackburn College on Friday, Aug. 31 and Berea College on Saturday, Sept. 1 for the 2018 opening weekend . 

The Owls have been working hard to prepare for the match-ups with two exhibition games to gauge their readiness for the season. 

"This weekend offers us a great opportunity to see how much we have grown from our exhibition matches.  I fully expect our comradery, tactical understanding, and communication to be much improved this weekend," said Head Coach Tim Gould. "Getting away for the weekend also offers us the opportunity to grow more as a team off the field."

The Owls match against Blackburn College is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday while the Berea match on Saturday will begin at 1 p.m.
