Gallaudet women’s soccer

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer program officially
released its schedule for fall 2018 as announced by head coach Dr. Liza
Offreda, who enters her fifth season at the helm. The Bison went 8-7-1
last season and 3-6-1 in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) play.
The 2017 slate features 17 games with nine at home, two of those games
will be on Hoy Field, and eight on the road.

Gallaudet showed quite the improvement last season where the Bison gained
six wins from their 2016 total to finish with a winning record and new
school record marks for wins (8) and goals (55).

Gallaudet will be begin the season on the road with a short trip over to
Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Md., on Friday, Aug. 31,
at 4 p.m.

The month of September finds the Bison on the road in Baltimore to go up
against Notre Dame of Maryland University on Sept. 4 before the home and
conference opener against College of Saint Elizabeth on Saturday, Sept. 8.
This begins a five-game homestand for the buff and blue. GU will host
Hollins University (Sept. 9), Wilson College (Sept. 12), Penn College
(Sept. 15) and Penn St.-Abington (Sept. 19). The last two games are
conference games as Wilson leaves the North Eastern Athletic Conference
(NEAC) to compete in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC). GU
will then travel on Sept. 22 to Penn St.-Berks, the defending NEAC
champion. Gallaudet returns home to close out the month at home against
Wells College and Keuka College.

GU will begin October on the road in New York against SUNY Poly on Oct. 6.
The following Saturday, GU plays host to SUNY Cobleskill (Oct. 13) on Hoy
Field. The next four games are on the road against Marymount (Va.)
University (Oct. 15), Morrisville State College (Oct. 20), Cazenovia
College (Oct. 21) and Lancaster Bible College (Oct. 25). Gallaudet closes
out its regular-season schedule with home game against Trinity Washington
University (Oct. 27) on Homecoming weekend. This game will also be senior
night for the team’s seniors.

The NEAC tournament will begin with quarterfinals on Oct. 30, followed by
semifinals on Nov. 3 and the NEAC championship match on Nov. 4.

random deafsports thoughts

A coach of a weak deaf school football team complained
that the stronger deaf school football team ran up
the score – in the first quarter, by playing a
smash-mouth game.

The coach of the stronger team was cruelly sarcastic,
asking if his aggressive tacklers were expected to
gently place the opposing ball carriers on the
ground, just like placing a baby in a crib!

That weak deaf team dropped football after that
season – and all deaf opponents paid the price -
one less deaf opponent to schedule with in future
seasons!
