Keydets Host Belmont Saturday for Senior Day
LEXINGTON, Va. – The VMI men’s soccer team hosts its final regular-season home game of the 2019 campaign Saturday against Belmont College at noon. VMI defender Cooper Duplantis will be honored in a pre-game ceremony for Senior Day.
The game will be an important one in the Southern Conference standings. Both Belmont and VMI are looking for their first conference win of 2019, and with a victory, the Keydets would have the inside track on the #6 seed and a first-round home game in the upcoming SoCon Tournament. VMI has one game remaining after Saturday’s contest, while Belmont has three.
VMI (1-13/0-4 SoCon) fell 3-0 Tuesday at Wofford College, despite nine saves from sophomore goalie Broden Schull, bringing his season total to 98 stops.
Belmont (2-8-2/0-1-1) had its most recent scheduled game at Mercer postponed due to inclement weather and has yet to be rescheduled. The Bruins fought to a double overtime tie against Wofford on October 12.
