GCU opponent calls off match one day prior to kickoff
By: Jim Howell/GCU Club Sports Information Director
GCU Club Sports has announced that the Grand Canyon University women’s club soccer match between the Lopes and Shepard University- originally scheduled for today (Friday), Oct. 20, at 5 pm at Prescott Field on the GCU campus- has been officially cancelled.
Shepard University officials notified Lopes’ head coach Erin Reinke late Thursday of their team’s inability to make the trip from California to Arizona to play the match. The match will not be made up.
That means that the Lopes’ season-ending weekend is now down to two matches. The Lopes will host archrival Arizona State University tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon, and will finish off their regular season schedule Sunday against the University of Arizona. Both matches are 2 pm kickoffs at Prescott Field, and admission to both events is FREE.
