Men’s soccer preview: ‘Get to the playoffs, everything else is extra’

Sierra Newton, Sports Editor September 5, 2019
After a 10-win season in 2018, and a successful preseason record of one win and one tie to #8 University of Kentucky, the Norse are continuing to build. Their first game of the regular season was on the road against Grand Canyon University; that game ended 3-0 in Grand Canyon’s favor.  “We had a really solid spring where we got some great results at the end,” Head Coach Stu Riddle said. “And we've continued that momentum now through preseason. So, I think we're all cautiously optimistic of what lies ahead for us.”
