Dolphins open season on the road

After finishing with a share of last year’s Atlantic Sun regular season title, the JU women’s soccer team begins its quest to repeat tonight as it opens the regular season on the road against Florida Atlantic.

The game marks the first time the 12 new freshmen on the roster will don the green and gold for JU.  Overall, JU returns 17 players including preseason and 2011 first team all-conference honoree Emily Culbreth. 

The Dolphins played FAU last season at home on Sept. 9 and defeated the Owls 2-0.  JU holds 9-6-1 advantage in the all-time series. 

Tonight’s game is scheduled for 7:00 pm.  The Dolphins will stay in the area and take on FIU on Sunday at 4:00 pm.
