Daytona State Women's Soccer Release Fall 2018 Schedule

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (dscfalcons.com)- The Daytona State Women's soccer program has released their schedule for the upcoming Fall 2018 season, July 1st 2018. This will be the Falcons' third season of competition, as the program began in 2016. In the 2018 season, the Falcons may face their toughest season yet, playing four teams that made the 2017 National tournament. The Falcons' preseason preparation starts August with their first exhibition game taking place just 9 days into preseason. Daytona will play 4 exhibition games against highly competitive Division I and Division II programs, starting out with Southeastern University on August 9th and ending with University of Tampa on August 21st.

The Falcons will open their regular season schedule down at Eastern Florida State University, where they will take on Johnson County Community College on August 24th, then will turn around and play Laramie County Community College. Laramie was ranked 3rd in the country going into the National Tournament, where they lost to ASA Brooklyn (the eventual National Tournament Runner's Up). The Falcons' final game in Melbourne (not against Eastern Florida) will take place on August 31st against St. Louis Community College. On September 2nd, the Falcons will be back on their home turf where they will host Northeast Community College from Nebraska. On September 6th the Monroe College Mustangs out of Brooklyn, New York will be traveling to Daytona State. These two teams faced off in 2017 in Melbourne, where the Falcons suffered their only regular season loss 2-1. The last three games before entering into Region 8 conference play consists of a road trip to Georgia September 11th and 12th, against Albany State and South Georgia College, respectively and finally back home against Webber International University on September 15th. Region 8 play begins September 18th at the Falcon Stadium against ASA Miami. 

During the 2017 campaign, the Falcons won their regular season Region 8 conference, ultimately losing to Eastern Florida in the Region 8 conference tournament final, missing the NJCAA National Tournament. With many new faces on the squad, the Falcons will look to improve on their last two season's successes preparing against opponents four opponents who made the 2017 National Tournament. When asked about the 2018 season Head Coach Brittany Jones said, "This fall we will face a high level of competition that will serve as a good test for our new squad. The aim of our program is to improve our performance and compete with teams at the highest level. I am excited to help prepare our group for success and look forward to August."
