The Christendom Crusaders kickoff their seasons this week, with both the men’s and women’s soccer teams playing their opening games at home on Tuesday, September 1 and Wednesday, September 2, under the new scoreboard on Crusader Fields. Both games begin at 5:00 PM, with the Crusaders squaring off against crosstown rival Lord Fairfax Community College on Tuesday and the Lady Crusaders playing Penn State Mont Alto on Wednesday.
Both teams look to continue their streak of winning seasons when they take the field this week, with the men coming off a strong 11-6-1 record last season, and the women even better with a 10-4 record.
Each team achieved crushing victories against NCAA Division III schools during their seasons as well — a feat that shows the continued strength of Christendom’s athletic program.
When they hit the fields this week, the teams have something else to look forward to also: playing under the new Crusader scoreboard, installed on the fields this summer thanks to the generous donations of the Class of 2014. The scoreboard will bring even more excitement to Christendom’s outdoor athletic events, allowing real-time updates during soccer games in the fall and rugby games in the spring.
The men’s soccer team will play again on Friday, September 4 at home against Berkeley-NJ, at 5:00 PM.
