Cougars looking for first home win


BYU soccer will play for its first home win Friday night against the Southern California Seahorses.

The Seahorses have yet to win a regular season game in the Premier Development League and are currently sitting at the bottom of the standings. The Cougars have only won one game this season and are in fifth place in the division. A win would give the Cougars a lift and help them finish out the season on a high note.

“The players are more prepared than they ever have been,” BYU soccer coach Chad Sackett said. “(They) are ready to get a win this weekend.”

BYU started its summer soccer camps earlier this week and has spent a lot of time outside of practice helping the campers learn fundamental soccer skills. The campers will help to fill South Field Stadium for the match on June 14 against Southern California.

“We expect it to be a great atmosphere with many of our campers at the game,” Sackett said.

The players volunteer their time to work with the campers each day.

The Cougars wrap up their four-game home stand and are hoping for a big crowd. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.

After the match Friday, the Cougars go on a two-game road trip until the first week of July, when they will return to South Field in Provo.
