SHAW WOMEN’S SOCCER LOOKS TO OPEN SEASON WEDNESDAY

Written by Antoine Lynch, Athletics Media Specialist

 

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Shaw University women's soccer team hopes the saying "third times a charm" holds true as the Lady Bears will attempt to open their 2019 season for the third time hosting UNC-Pembroke at the MAC Sports & Entertainment (8924 Midway West Road, Raleigh, NC 27617). Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m.

 

Admission is free and open to the public.

 

Live coverage will be available via www.shawbears.com.

 

The Lady Bears latest attempt to open the season came to an halt Monday as Shaw's contest versus Chowan was suspended due to lighting at the 53 tied at 1-1'.

 

Due to time requirements for contest to be considered official, the match has been deemed as no contest at the moment. A makeup date will be announced later. Shaw first attempt was washed out due to the effects from Hurricane Dorian on Sept. 5

 

The Braves from UNC-Pembroke (1-0) are scheduled for back-to-back matches facing Barton this evening in Wilson, NC at 5 p.m.  Previously, UNCP defeated Belmont Abbey 2-0 in their first contest of the season on Sept. 7 in Pembroke, N.C.
