Aug. 29, 2013
LUBBOCK, Texas - The No. 23 Texas Tech soccer team continues its season-long five match homestand this weekend as the Red Raiders host Idaho State and Long Beach State at the John Walker Soccer Complex.
Tech opens the weekend Friday with a primetime match against Idaho State at 7 p.m. The Red Raiders then host Long Beach State for a Sunday evening match scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
"We're excited for these two matches on our home field," head coach Tom Stone said. "We had a great start to our season last weekend and now have a chance to face two quality opponents. We have a strong tradition of Sunday night games just being great here, so if we can get through Friday night we should have a great atmosphere on Sunday."
The Red Raiders are among just two Big 12 teams to not have allowed a goal in the 2013 season. Tech has outscored opponents 7-0 in two matches while allowing just seven total shots.
Texas Tech (2-0-0) enters the weekend fresh off a 6-0 shutout of Colorado State Sunday at the John Walker Soccer Complex in which senior defender Hayley Haagsma netted two goals.
Both matches this weekend will be made available on TexasTech.TV
