SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – The Master’s College Athletic Department is proud to announce the 2013 men’s soccer schedule.

"Our schedule has come together nicely,” said 23rd-year head coach Jim Rickard. “We've got a great pre-conference schedule filled with excellent opponents to get us ready for an always grueling conference schedule.  Many of our opponents prior to conference are ranked in their respective divisions which will give us a great test leading up to league.”

TMC’s 2013 schedule boasts seven home appearances and 12 road matches.  Of the 19 contests, two are against national ranked squads: No. 6 Concordia of Irvine, and No. 16 Jamestown of North Dakota.

Rickard’s Mustangs went 8-10-1 (4-5-1 GSAC) in 2012, and anticipates a strong 2013 season with the six recruits signed in the offseason.

“The coaching staff feels that we have put together a roster that will position us well against all our opponents throughout the season," assessed Rickard of his squad.

The 2013 campaign will begin on Thursday, August 22, in a 4:00 PM match against Jamestown College (N.D.) in Salt Lake City, Utah.  TMC’s first home match, however, will be on September 21 against CSU San Marcos at 4:00 P.M.
