TV shines light on Lady’Back Soccer

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of Arkansas Lady Razorback soccer team plays in front of a national audience on Sunday afternoon when it’s game with the South Carolina Gamecocks is broadcast on television beginning at 12:00 p.m. central.

Arkansas is appearing on television for the first time in three years when it is the Southeastern Conference’s match of the week. The game broadcast is scheduled to be shown on both Fox and Sun Sports in its entirety live.

“This should be another good match,” Arkansas head coach Gordon Henderson said. “This game may determine whether or not we advance to the SEC Tournament. We have nothing to lose and have to go out and play and see what happens.”

The Lady Razorbacks enter Sunday afternoon’s contest reeling from another tough loss, the latest to the 23rd-ranked Florida Gators at Lady’Back Field on Thursday night, 1-0. Arkansas’ history with South Carolina however has the Lady Razorback faithful circling Sunday’s match as a game to watch. Arkansas has not lost to South Carolina since the 2004 season and is 2-1-1 against the Gamecocks dating back to 2003. Last fall, the Lady Razorbacks worked a 1-1 tie out of South Carolina at Lady’Back Field thanks to a goal by Katie Hamilton.

This fall South Carolina has been hot and cold. Starting the year with a huge upset win over defending national champion North Carolina, the Gamecocks were one of the nation’s hottest teams until SEC play began in late September. Once the conference season started, South Carolina cooled off slightly but still managed to win four conference matches and tie one for 13 points and sixth-best record in the league.
