PITTSBURGH- The University of Pittsburgh men’s soccer team has announced its 2011 spring schedule. This spring will mark the unveiling of the Petersen Sports Complex, the new state-of-the-art homes for the Panthers' men’s and women’s soccer, baseball and softball teams. The complex is located on 12 acres on Pitt's upper campus.
The Panthers will first see action in the new facility on March 20, against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds with a noon kickoff.
UPDATE - March 22nd, 2011
The Hounds won a mostly uneventful game by the score of 1 to nil. 2010 USL2 Rookie of the Year winner Jeremy Deighton found the back of the net in the 2nd half to give the Hounds a pre-season victory. The new soccer complex was brilliant! Seeing a nice, wide pitch with only soccer lines in this city is always something that puts a smile on my face. There was only one stand with limited seating but plenty of standing room around the near goal and opposite sideline.
