NASHVILLE – The Lipscomb women’s soccer team will once again be splitting their weekend with a home and away match, this time with a pair of “Power Five” conference foes in waiting.
The Lady Bisons are will be visited by Cincinnati for a 5 p.m. matchup on Thursday before traveling to Arkansas for a 1 p.m. kickoff on Sunday.
Lipscomb is coming off of one of the best starts in program history as the Purple and Gold have started out 6-1-1 with their only loss coming at Ole Miss. The Lady Bisons defeated the other two Southeastern Conference foes, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State, they faced and enter the weekend on a four-game winning streak.
