Soccer Releases 2014 Schedule

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – The Northern Arizona women's soccer 2014 schedule has been released with the Lumberjacks playing in 19 matches.

"I think the schedule is a good balance for us," said head coach Andre Luciano. "It gives us some good road trips against some quality opponents and I think the most important thing is these 19 games help us in our quest of being one of the top six teams in conference."

The Lumberjacks will have 9 matches at home this upcoming season that includes Valparaiso, South Dakota, Wright State and in-state opponent Grand Canyon.

"There are going to be a lot of opponents this year that we have not played a lot in years past," said Luciano. "It is always nice to have Grand Canyon on our schedule since it has developed into a little rivalry."

The Lumberjacks' first Big Sky Conference match will be at home this season against Portland State, which hosted last season's Big Sky Championships. The Lumberjacks will also have four more Big Sky matches at home this season against Sacramento State, Eastern Washington, Montana and Southern Utah.

Northern Arizona will travel to Moscow, Idaho to face new member of the Big Sky, the University of Idaho. NAU will also travel to conference opponents, North Dakota, Northern Colorado, Weber State and Idaho State.    

The Lumberjacks will return six All-Big Sky conference selections from last year including Diane Buzzard, Sarah Tarver, Savannah Berry, Haley Wingender, Danny Muniz and the Big Sky's Golden Boot Award Winner, Cierra Gamble. Returners from last year's squad scored a combined 23 goals and 22 assists.
