MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University women’s soccer team closes out its spring home slate against Alderson Broaddus on April 17, at 7 p.m., at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. Admission is free.
Thursday is a Pink Night, and all fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness. Additionally, the team will hold a free egg hunt for all fans during halftime; please bring your own Easter basket.
“We’re progressing pretty well this spring, and we just need to maintain our focus and continue to improve every opportunity we have,” says Mountaineer coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “I think our work ethic and mentality has been very good thus far.
“Constant awareness is very important when it comes to breast cancer, so we enjoy hosting a spring Pink Game. This is a way for us to finalize our fund-raising efforts for the season.”
The Mountaineers are undefeated at home this spring, most recently trumping Ohio State, 3-0, at Dreamswork Field on April 12. Sophomores Kelsie Maloney, Kailey Utley and Amanda Hill registered the WVU goals, while freshman Kadeisha Buchanan was the standout on defense.
“It’s important for us to execute Thursday night,” Izzo-Brown continues. “We need to apply the concepts we’ve gone over in training this week against ABU.”
The Battlers are led by first-year coach Cristian Materazzi, a volunteer coach with the Mountaineers in 2010. ABU finished 2013 at 7-11-2.
