The Southwest Baptist Bearcats open their MIAA season tonight when they host #19-ranked Missouri Southern Lions. The game is on the SBU campus and begins at 5:00 pm this evening. These games are always tight as the regional rivals play the first of what will be a home and away series.
Closer to home (for me at least) is the Missouri State game against Western Michigan. Game time is 7:00 pm at Plaster Stadium. The Bronco’s are led by the three senior captains, midfielders Amy Letzgus and Laura White and defender Valerie McIntyre. Also in the lineup is the Broncosâ€™ top scorer from the past two seasons, junior forward Thalia Playford. Playford notched seven goals last year and six in her first season.
The Western Michigan Broncos play in the Mid America Conference (MAC) where they are picked to finish last by the Coaches in their pre-season poll. The Bronco’s play in Columbia against Mizzou on Saturday.
