Women’s Soccer releases fall 2015 Schedule

FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga - The Emmanuel College Women's Soccer program has a full slate of games planned for the coming fall 2015 season.

The fall 2015 season will be year two of NCAA D II Conference Carolinas play where the Lions will look to build on the experiences of their 5-14-0 first season in the NCAA.

"The 2014 season opened a lot of eyes," said Head Coach Forrest Wimberly.  "We saw firsthand how demanding an 18-game NCAA schedule can be and have applied those lessons learned into our fitness program, weight training program, recruiting profile, and overall operations of our program.  With a clear idea of what to expect along with more depth and a better rhythm to the schedule, this should give us that little boost we needed last season to turn those close games in our favor.  I am very eager to see how much we've grown as a program in just a short period of time."

The preseason opens with a pair of Peach Belt Conference opponents in scrimmage games at the end of August.  September then opens the regular season with a pair of Gulf South Conference opponents as West Georgia and Shorter visit Franklin Springs the first week of the month.  A road game on September 12 at King University in Bristol, Tenn. opens the Conference Carolinas dates and the first home Conference Carolinas game is a mid-week visit by Limestone on September 15.

October 3 sees Erskine College visit Franklin Springs and then on October 8 EC travels to Peach Belt Champion and NCAA No. 4 ranked Columbus State.  Senior night will be Friday, November 6 as NCCAA regional rivals Judson College visits the Springs.  Later in November the Lions will travel to West Point, Ga. to play in the NCCAA South Region tournament.

In addition to the non-conference teams mentioned earlier the Lions will host Brevard College and Mars Hill College and travel to nearby Anderson University to complete the schedule.

"There are no easy games and we made every effort to play a very demanding non-conference schedule," continued Wimberly.  "This is going to be fun, we've assembled a very strong group of players for this campaign."
