Time, Venue Change Made for UHH Road Soccer Matches
There will be a new time and venue for Thursday’s men’s and women’s soccer matches between the University of Hawai’i at Hilo and Holy Names University.
Both schools announced Wednesday that the PacWest conference matches will now be played at the Cal State East Bay campus.
Times have also changed for both matches. The men’s contest will start at 1:30 p.m. Hawai’i time (4:30 p.m. Pacific), followed by the women’s game at 4 p.m. HT (7 p.m. PT). Live stats for both matches will be available at this link.
In an e-mail, UH-Hilo Interim Director of Athletics Tim Moore said that the changes were made per a request by Holy Names. The host school said that it did not want its students to miss class time.
Both UH-Hilo soccer teams were in action Wednesday, taking on San Francisco State in non-conference play. In the men’s match, the Gators defeated UH-Hilo 1-0 in overtime. Sam Merritt scored a goal from 10 yards out to defeat the Vulcans less than two minutes in to extra time. UH-Hilo fell to 5-7-1.
In the women’s match, both teams played to a scoreless draw. Kayla Clarke made five saves to preserve the scoreless tie. The Vulcans are 5-3-5 on the season.
