Tonight's Embry-Riddle men's soccer match and Saturday's Yavapai College soccer match are both still scheduled, weather permitting, but both sites have changed.
The Eagles are scheduled to open their 2013 season tonight against Mesa at 6 p.m. But rather than play on the ERAU campus, due some campus renovations going on, the game has been moved to Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley.
The next three Riddle soccer matches, according to ERAU athletic director Ted Blake, will all be at Mountain Valley Park in PV. The Riddle women have an exhibition match with the University of Antelope Valley (Calif.) on Aug. 27 at 7 p.m., and then open their regular season Aug. 31 against The Master's College (Calif.) at 6 p.m. Those two will be in Prescott Valley.
On Saturday night, the Yavapai College men were scheduled to host Glendale at Ken Lindley Field in Prescott at 6 p.m. The college announced today that the match will be moved to Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley, with the same 6 p.m. kickoff. The match was moved in anticipation of wet and stormy conditions potentially impacting the softball dirt infield that the soccer field shares at Lindley.
Friday night's rained-out soccer match between YC and Chandler-Gilbert will be re-played in its entirety on Sept. 2 at Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley at 2 p.m.
