The Rice soccer team returns to action with the start of Conference USA league play beginning on Sept. 26 (Friday). The Owls (4-1-2) host C-USA rival Southern Miss (5-4-0) at 7 pm at Holloway Field. The Blue & Gray then welcomes red-hot Louisiana Tech (8-1-1) for a 1 pm conference match on Sunday (Sept. 28).
Riding a streak of six-straight matches without a loss, the Owls are receiving votes in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll. Rice head coach Nicky Adams previews the weekend matches in the above video with some additional insight on the current career-goals-chase between forwards Holly Hargreaves and Lauren Hughes. Both players head into Friday night's game needing only one goal to tie, and two to break, the Rice record for career goals scored... and note that both are only juniors so this particular race for the record is far from final.
