With fall seasons currently in full swing, the Terriers have yet another busy week ahead, highlighted by Homecoming festivities on campus on Saturday, September 17.
After not playing last week due to the bye, Hiram will welcome Kenyon to Henry Field at 1 p.m. as part of Homecoming on Saturday, September 17. Kenyon has won two straight to open the season, while the Terriers enter play at 0-1.
The Lords took last season's matchup 34-17 in Gambier. Saturday's meeting will be the 56th all-time between the two schools, with the Lords holding a slim 27-25-3 lead in the series.
Fresh off a split at the NCAC/PAC Challenge over the weekend, men's soccer stands at 2-2-0 with two tough non-conference contests this week. On Wednesday, September 14 the Terriers will welcome Case Western to Henry Field at 7:30 p.m. The Spartans hold a 31-15-5 edge in the series and won the last meeting in 2014 by a 2-0 score.
The Terriers will then play host to John Carroll on Saturday, September 17 at 6 p.m. This will be the 38th time the two teams have met, with the Blue Streaks holding a 23-14 edge in the series.
After dropping two tough contests last week, women's soccer will look to rebound with a single game this week. Hiram will hit the road on Thursday, September 15 for a 7:30 match at John Carroll. The schools have met 19 previous times, with JCU winning all but two contests.
The Terriers posted a 2-1 mark last week, which included sweeps of Hilbert (N.Y.) and Marietta at their own tri-match. Hiram will now travel up to Kalamazoo (Mich.) for a two-day tournament on Friday, September 16 and Saturday, September 17.
On Friday, Hiram will open play with a 7 p.m. match against Anderson (Ind.). The Terriers will then play twice on Saturday, with a 10 a.m. contest against Finlandia (Mich.) and a noon matchup against host Kalamazoo to close out play.
The Terrier men's golf team will close out play at the Guy Kuhn Invitational on Monday, September 12. They will then be idle for the rest of the week.
The women's golf program is off for the week and will return to competition in October.
