The Liberty women's soccer team has released its schedule for the 2019 season. The Flames will play eight home games and nine games away from Lynchburg during their second season in the ASUN Conference. "The 2019 non-conference schedule is going to be a wonderful challenge for our program. We are fortunate to have some great games at home that include Clemson, Pitt, James Madison, William & Mary and Old Dominion," head coach Lang Wedemeyer said. "After a rigorous early season, we face some talented teams in the ASUN, but the players will be ready for the opportunities that the schedule presents." Wedemeyer continues to challenge his team throughout its non-conference schedule, facing three teams in the ACC (Pitt, Virginia and Virginia Tech), which is a first in school history. The Lady Flames will face two teams (Lipscomb and Virginia) that played in the NCAA College Cup last season. Liberty will travel to five different states as the Lady Flames face schools from the ACC, Atlantic 10, CAA, C-USA and SoCon.
Prior to the regular season, Liberty will play in two exhibition games during the preseason starting against Longwood in Farmville, Va. on Aug. 14. Liberty will close out the preseason against ACC opponent, Clemson, at Osborne Stadium on Aug. 17, just five days before kicking off the regular season.
The ASUN Championship kicks off on Nov. 1 as The top six teams based on regular season conference standings will advance to the tournament. The #1 seed will host the #4 vs. #5 seed, and the #2 seed will host the #3 vs. #6 seed on Nov. 1 and play the winner on Nov. 3. The winner of the semfinal games will meet on Nov. 9th in the ASUN Championship Final at the highest remaining seed.
