BYU soccer: Cougar men's soccer travels to California for first regular-season game
PROVO, Utah — The BYU men's soccer team will compete in its first regular-season game on Tuesday, May 7, against the Orange County Blues Strikers Football Club at 7 p.m.
BYU travels to Pacific Palisades, Calif., to test its preseason training against the OC Blues Strikers. BYU ended its preseason 4–2 after about a month of exhibition play.
The OC Blues Strikers FC, known as the Pali Blues in 2012, have played one game this season, conquering Ventura County last week. BYU hopes to defeat this team with a strong defense and aggressive offense. BYU will take 20 players to upcoming game.
BYU competes in the USL Premier Development League, the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid. The team has competed in the league since May 2003. BYU’s team was the first university sponsored soccer program to purchase a franchise and compete at a higher level.
