This next week students will only have one chance to get out to some home games, with just women’s soccer staying at home. For fans able to travel a short distance, the softball team will be playing in St. George.
Soccer will start off the weekend on Friday with a game against the University of Idaho Vandals on the Thunderbird Soccer Field at 4 p.m.
The Thunderbirds are currently ranked in tenth place in the Big Sky Conference with a 0-2 conference record and a 1-9 overall record.
The Vandals are in ninth place in the Big Sky with a 0-1-1 conference record and a 4-5-2 overall record.

The SUU softball team will play the University of Utah Utes on Saturday as the home team on Karl Brooks Field in St. George at 11 a.m., and the Dixie State Trail Blazers as the away team at 1 p.m.

A doubleheader against the Colorado Northwestern Community College Spartans on Sept. 23 was cancelled.
