HAVERFORD, Pa. - After a 2021 season that resulted in narrowly missing out on the Centennial Conference tournament, the Haverford College men's soccer team returns to competition this fall with a renewed focus on getting back to where they belong. The regular season is set for 17 regular-season games with nine of them at home on Walton Field. The Fords take on Immaculata in an exhibition on Tuesday, August 24 before the annual Alumni Game on Saturday, August 27.
The team's official start of the season is slated for September 1 against Cabrini on Walton Field. The Fords hit the road for a two-game road trip to take on Wilkes (Sept. 3) and Rowan (Sept. 7) before hosting the Jimmy Mills Classic Tournament. For the tournament, Haverford takes on Lycoming on Saturday, September 10, and Skidmore the following day. The Fords stay home for three straight games starting with Arcadia (Sept. 14), Dickinson (Sept. 17), and Stockton (Sept. 20). The game against Dickinson marks the start of Centennial Conference play.
The schedule continues with a Saturday night trip to Maryland to take on Johns Hopkins (Sept. 24), then the Fords return home for a mid-week matchup with Washington College on Wednesday, September 28. The longest road trip of the season kicks off with a game against Muhlenberg on Saturday, October 1.
