16 Jul Women’s Soccer Announce 2021 Schedule
Denison women’s soccer returns to action with a full competitive fall schedule. The Big Red will feel very much at home at Barclay-Thomsen field as 12 of their 17 games this year will take place in Granville. They open with a seven game homestand, beginning with Ohio Athletic Conference rival Otterbein on September 1st. It’s quick turnaround in the first week as they host George Fox University and Alma College on September 3rd and September 4th.
They open North Coast Athletic Conference play on September 25th when they take on the Battling Bishops of Ohio Wesleyan. Big Red Weekend will feature a home matchup against Allegheny Gators on October 2nd, and they close out the regular season on the road as they face-off against the 2019 NCAC Tournament Champions, Wooster, on October 30th.
“Our schedule is always competitive, and this fall is no exception. We have our usual rivals Otterbein, Ohio Northern, Centre and Case Western. We feel playing those teams helps prepare us for our conference season. We’re pleased to have both Transylvania and Calvin back on our schedule and we’ve added some new opponents. Alma, Trine and George Fox are each coming to Barclay-Thomsen field in September and round out our non-conference schedule. We are just so excited to get back to campus and grateful for the chance to have a fall season,” said Murphy.
The Big Red have some key players returning for the 2021 season. Patil Tcholakian ’22 is a three-year starter in goal and was named All-NCAC Second Team in 2019 after finishing with 104 saves and seven total shutouts. The leading scorer from their 2019 team is also returning to Granville. Abby King ’22, scored eight goals and had 18 points in 19 games in 2019. She was named First-Team All-NCAC and Third-Team All-Great Lakes Region selection.
