NORFOLK, VA -The Old Dominion University women's soccer team is set to kick off preseason action Wednesday night, taking on East Carolina University at the ODU Soccer Stadium at 7:00 PM. Admission is free. In 2003, the Lady Monarchs also met the Lady Pirates in their first exhibition game, dropping a 5-0 decision in Greensboro, NC.
During the regular season, ODU holds a 7-2-0 all-time edge over ECU, emerging victorious in the last meeting, in 2000, taking a 3-1 decision in Norfolk.
The Lady Monarchs are looking to have a strong 2004 season, after an injury-plagued 3-9-5 campaign in 2003. ODU will have the solid leadership of nine seniors, including goalkeepers Stephanie Miller (Plymouth Meeting, PA) and Kristen Bailey (Hamilton, VA), to balance a very strong nine-member freshman class.
ODU will kick off the regular season Friday, August 27, against UNC-Greensboro, at the ODU Soccer Stadium at 7:00 PM, in the first of four straight home games to start off the season.
