BELLINGHAM, Wash. - The Western Washington University men's soccer team will play 11 times at its new campus facility this fall. That begins with two exhibitions at Robert S. Harrington Field on Aug. 23 against NCAA Division I Seattle University and on Aug. 30 versus Trinity Western.
The Vikings have an early season five-game home stand, playing host to Cal State East Bay on Sept. 13, Notre Dame de Namur on Sept. 15, Simon Fraser on Sept. 20, Northwest Nazarene on Sept. 25 and Montana State Billings on Sept. 27. The meetings with Simon Fraser, Northwest Nazarene and Montana State Billings are Great Northwest Athletic Conference counters.
WWU's final four home games, all GNAC contests, are with Saint Martin's on Oct. 16, Seattle Pacific on Oct. 18, South Dakota Mines on Oct. 30 and University of Mary on Nov. 1.
The Vikings have 10 road games, beginning with an exhibition at British Columbia on Aug. 26. Their regular-season trips are to Cal State L.A. on Sept. 4, UC San Diego on Sept. 6, Seattle Pacific on Oct. 2, Saint Martin's on Oct. 4, Mary on Oct. 9, South Dakota Mines on Oct. 11, Montana State Billings on Oct. 23, Northwest Nazarene on Oct. 25 and Simon Fraser on Nov. 8.
WWU has not played on campus since the 2000 season with its home games during the interim taking place at Civic Stadium in Bellingham, Pipeline Field in Blaine and most recently at Orca Field on the Whatcom CC campus.
The Vikings had one of the school's most successful seasons in 2013, finishing 11-4-3 overall and 9-2-3 in GNAC play. The campaign ended with a 3-0 victory over nationally No.2-ranked Simon Fraser.
Head coach Greg Brisbon (2nd year, previously WWU assistant for 12 seasons, eight as associate head coach) has eight starters back. They are led by goalkeeper Keegan Rogers (Sr., Portland, OR/Portland Christian), a third-team National Soccer Coaches Association of American West Region and second-team GNAC all-star who ranked 13th nationally in goals against average at 0.67 and save percentage at .848, and first-team all-league defender Troy McCarty (So., Snohomish), who scored four goals.
