FULL 2016 SCHEDULE


South Orange, N.J. -
Nine home matches and four contests against 2015 NCAA Tournament teams highlight the 2016 Seton Hall women’s soccer schedule, the team announced Tuesday.

The challenging slate of fixtures includes 11 matches against top-150 NCAA RPI clubs, seven against the top 100.

The season-opening fixture takes place Friday, Aug. 19 at Saint Joseph’s, and the home opener at Owen T. Carroll Field will be on Monday, Aug. 29 vs. Quinnipiac.

Seton Hall's BIG EAST opener is Saturday, Sept. 24 against local rival St. John's. The Pirates will be looking to climb up the standings of the ultra-competitive conference, which is coming off a season in which it placed three teams into the NCAA Tournament.

Prior to the start of the regular season, the Pirates will play two exhibition matches, an Aug. 11 home friendly vs. Lafayette and an Aug. 14 road friendly at Wagner.

All regular season home matches will be broadcast online either through the Pirate Sports Network or the BIG EAST Digital Network. Visit SHUPirates.com later in the summer for the full streaming schedule.

Under third-year head coach Rick Stainton, the Pirates return 21 letter winners from last season’s club, including seven student-athletes who started at least half of the team’s matches. The Pirates have also added four freshmen and two Div. I transfers to create a squad balanced in talent and experience.
