RICHMOND, Va. – During a week of uncertainty due to the potential effects of Hurricane Florence, the VMI women’s soccer team will return to the pitch tonight for a 7:30 matchup with host Richmond at Robins Stadium in Richmond, Virginia.
The game was originally scheduled for Thursday night at the same time.
Date/Time: Wednesday, Sept. 12 | 7:30 p.m.
Location: Richmond, Va. | Robins Stadium
The undefeated Keydets (5-0-1) are coming off a 3-0 victory over Campbell on Sunday in a game that VMI scored all three goals in the first half. Sierra Brewer scored the game-winning goal before Blake Cashin and Maria Vargas added scores later in the period. Cashin received another point in the game as she was credited with an assist on Brewer’s goal.
Brewer leads the team with three goals on the season.
Named last week’s SoCon Player of the Week, senior goalie Ceci Keppeler recorded her fourth shutout of the season and has only allowed one goal over the past four games.
About the Spiders (0-6, 0-0 Atlantic 10)
Although Richmond has not won a game to this point of the season, the Spiders have played a difficult schedule with losses to SoCon foes Furman and UNCG and the likes of East Carolina, Elon and most recently to American.
The Spiders return to the friendly confines of Robins Stadium for tonight’s matchup, a venue they have not played in since August 31 in which they lost a 3-0 game to East Carolina.
Molly Morgan and TJ Anderson lead the team with one goal apiece on the season.
