WVU women’s soccer embarks on 9-game Big 12 slate Friday
Mountaineers travel to Iowa State
MORGANTOWN, W.Va (WDTV) - West Virginia women’s soccer will be the first Mountaineer team to play in the fall of 2020 as WVU travels to Iowa State to kickoff their 9-game Big 12 season on Friday night.
“At the end of the day, we are so thankful to play and we are so thankful that we are going to have some competition,” head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown said.
8 starters return from their 2019 Sweet 16 team, but they are still young with 17 of 25 players being underclassmen. The Mountaineers will also have to fill the shoes of four year starting goalie Rylee Foster who is second in program history with 39 shutouts, and is currently playing professionally for Liverpool FC.
WVU will play Friday from now until the first week of November, with the hope of also competing in the spring, if the NCAA holds its championship season then.
