The NIU women’s soccer program announced its 19 match schedule, with its home opener Sept. 5 against Nebraska-Omaha at 7 p.m.

The Huskies make their first trip to Hawaii as part of the OHANA Hotels and Resorts No Ka Oi. NIU will spend its Labor Day weekend in Hawaii taking on the Rainbow Wahine on Aug. 29 and Seattle on Aug. 31.

“We are very excited for the 2014 season,” coach John Ross said. “Our nonconference opponents will be challenging and help prepare us for our MAC schedule. We are looking forward to seeing the players when camp starts and getting the season started.”

The Huskies return seven players who had 10 or more starts last season, including leading scorer Nicole Gobbo.
