CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Following an impressive campaign last season, a number of tough tests await the Harvard men's soccer team once again, as the Crimson released its 2015 schedule Monday. Harvard will host nine home games at Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium/Ohiri Field in 2015, including four Ivy League contests.
The Crimson kicks off its fall slate at home this season, as Loyola Marymount (Sept. 4), Southern Methodist (Sept. 6) and regional foe Connecticut (Sept. 10) all pay visits to Cambridge. Both games versus SMU and UConn will be played on the natural grass of Ohiri Field – the only two games hosted by the venue this season.
A five-game road swing then sets in motion to close out the month of September, beginning with a trip to Long Island to take on Stony Brook (Sept. 13). From there, the Crimson will travel to the Evergreen State on Sept. 18 and 20 to take on Seattle and 2014 NCAA participant Washington. Harvard will be traveling with Ivy partner Dartmouth for the weekend showdowns out west.
After returning to Boston, the Crimson makes the short trip to Boston University for a midweek showdown on Sept. 24, before starting the Ivy League slate at Yale on Oct. 3. New Hampshire comes in on Oct. 6 for a midweek nonconference game, before the Crimson packs up again to head to Cornell on Oct. 10. Following a game at Soldiers Field versus Brown on Oct. 17, the Crimson heads to Pittsburgh to take on the Pitt Panthers on Oct. 20 for another tough nonconference battle.
Three straight home games featuring Princeton (Oct. 24), Boston College (Oct. 27) and Dartmouth (Oct. 31) are next, followed by the final road trip of the year at Columbia on Nov. 7. A visit from Penn for the regular season finale on Nov. 14 will look to give the Crimson a shot at the NCAA Tournament. A conference title is well within Harvard's sights as the Crimson finished 2014 with a 11-4-2 overall mark and a 4-1-2 conference record, good for second in the final league standings.
