It’s a darn good weekend for soccer and that includes the College game. Of particular note is the return to the pitch of Louis Berra for the Louisville Cardinals after sitting out a season following his transfer from Ohio State. The DeSmet soccer alum and his teammates face off against the SIUE Cougars on Saturday afternoon in Edwardsville. Game time is 3:30 pm. There is an Alumni game at 2:30 as well.
Prior to the Men’s game the SIUE Women will host the Governor’s Cup. SIUE will face off with Eastern Illinois while Northern Illinois will play Western Illinois. The winners of each game will play for the Governor’s Cup. The other two teams will play for third place. The first kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m.
I maintain a St Louis Soccer Calendar where you can find Men (Blue) and Women’s (pink) games as well as key High School and Club games I add to keep on my radar. They’re color-coded for your convenience.
The Quincy Lady Hawks are also in town, playing at Lindenwood University at noon on Saturday. It’s the soccer pitch located back behind the student housing, across the creek from the Stadium. Drive back there, go to the left and then to the right past the Dorm.
Looking to next weekend, the Lady Billikens will wrap their preseason by hosting SEMO on Friday April 25, 5:30 pm at Hermann Stadium. The annual Alumni game is on Saturday at 2pm.
