What’s on tap? Busy, eventful weekend in Pittsburgh soccer

The Fall college season will finally hit full throttle this weekend!

The Riverhounds and Pitt men will both be on opposite ends of Ohio taking on very tough opponents.

The Pitt men face a team that made it to the College Cup a season ago, Akron University in a very good early season test. While the Riverhounds are in Cincinnati, where we will be providing on-site coverage as the Hounds will try to pick up some points on the USL’s Eastern Conference front-runners.

The Pitt women kicked the weekend off on Thursday, losing for the first time this season, 4-0, at TCU, in head coach Randy Waldrum‘s return to his home state. The ladies will finish the trip to the Lone Star state by taking on North Texas on Sunday.

Duquesne men will finally get to its much awaited home opener against Northern Kentucky, while the Duquesne women return to action on Sunday vs Binghamton at Rooney Field as well.  Our Zac Weiss penned this preview on Duquesne men, who are looking to put together a complete effort after a 1-0 loss to Marshall to open the season last weekend.

Robert Morris teams are in action with each team playing twice (men host Detroit Mercy then Northern Kentucky on Friday and Monday respectively), and the women are on a Midwestern swing, taking on Milwaukee on Friday, then Valparasio on Sunday.

All of that also doesn’t include the official kickoff to the high school season as many teams will be in action. Be sure to check our latest edition of the High School Notebook for the full schedule of WPIAL boys and girls games.
