DODGE CITY, Kan. – Dodge City men’s soccer coach Tim Romanello is eager to announce the 2014 soccer schedule.
The Conquistadors play a tough Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference schedule, as well as a tough non-conference slate.
“It’s a really competitive schedule,” said Romanello, who led the Conqs to a 9-9-1 overall record in 2013. “We are playing every team in the Jayhawk Conference, on the East and the West, and nearly each team in our region. This conference is the toughest JUCO conference in the nation, period. I really like where we stand and it’s going to be a fun to coach this team.”
The Conqs begin preparation for the season Aug. 8 with the annual Purple vs. Gold scrimmage and follow that up with an alumni game Aug. 13.
DC3 scrimmages at Central Christian Aug. 20.
The Conqs open the regular season Aug. 23 at home against Northern Oklahoma and action at the pitch is set to begin at 6 p.m.
DC3 embarks on a four-game road trip at Central Methodist (Aug. 29), Westminster (Aug. 31), Barton (Sept. 3) and Hesston College (Sept. 5). DC3 then begins a two-game home stand Sept. 9 against Oklahoma Wesleyan and welcomes Cloud County (Sept. 12) to Memorial Stadium.
The Conqs then travel to Cowley College (Sept. 17) and then welcome Tabor College (Sept. 20) to Conquistador Field.
The Conqs close out the month of September with a pair of games at Oklahoma Wesleyan (Sept. 25) and Johnson County (Sept. 27).
DC3 opens October with a three-game home stretch. The Conqs welcome Lamar (Oct. 1), Pratt (Oct. 10) and Coffeyville (Oct. 12) to Memorial Stadium.
