2018 Men's Soccer Schedule

WHITTIER, Calif. – Head Men's Soccer Coach Shea Harwell officially announced his 2018 schedule Wednesday afternoon. 

This season the Purple & Gold will host nine games at Memorial Stadium.  They begin with back-to-back contests on August 31 and September 1 against Bethesda University and Linfield College.  They then travel for two away games to begin Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) play as they take on Chapman University (September 5) and Occidental (September 8) before returning home to take on Caltech (September 12) and La Verne (September 15). 

The final three games of September include two away match-ups with Claremont-M-S (September 19) and Pomona-Pitzer (September 22) followed by a night game on the turf at home against Cal Lutheran (September 26).

A quick road game against Redlands (October 3) jumpstarts October play.  But immediately following the Purple & Gold host four of their next five games against Chapman (October 6), Occidental (October 10), Claremont-M-S (October 20), and Pomona-Pitzer (October 24).

The match-up against the Sagehens will be the Poets Senior Night before they wrap up their regular season against Caltech on October 27. 

Last season Whittier finished 5-10, 5-9 SCIAC, and found themselves finishing 7th in the SCIAC Standings.
