Razorbacks Travel To Vanderbilt For SEC Matchup

FAYETTEVILLE — The Arkansas soccer team (9-5, 2-4) will travel to Nashville, Tenn., to start a split weekend against Southeastern Conference (SEC) foe Vanderbilt on Friday evening. The match is slated for a 6 p.m. start. Vanderbilt enters this weekend’s matchup off a tough 1-0 loss at Ole Miss, while the Razorbacks just dropped their second overtime loss of the season at Texas A&M, 4-3. The Razorbacks have scored three or more goals six times this season, a feat that has not been done since 2001. “If I am not mistaken, this is the same time last year we made a run,” head coach Colby Hale said. “Vanderbilt is a very good team, but we like where we are. We always play well on the road and I expect this will be no different. Vanderbilt poses some unique challenges and I think our players are looking forward to stepping up. Training was excellent yesterday and I think they are ready to get on the road for the next challenge.” After six conference games last season, the Razorbacks made their move, going on to win five of the final six games in SEC play and earn a trip to Orange Beach, Fla., and the SEC Tournament. The Razorbacks trail the all-time series 8-17-1 against the Commodores, and will try to end a three-match losing skid dating back to 2010. Arkansas last win against Vanderbilt was a 2-0 shutout victory in Nashville. Audio of the match can be found at ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
