Auburn to Take on Southern Miss Tomorrow in Second Contest of 2022

Auburn is hosting the Southern Miss Golden Eagles tomorrow at the Auburn Soccer Complex. The match kicks off at 2:00 P.M.

The Tigers were successful in their season opener at home on Thursday night, beating the Old Dominion Monarchs 1-0. The only goal of the game was scored by Junior midfielder Anna Haddock.

Southern Miss also got their season off to a good start on Thursday night as they knocked off Mississippi Gulf Coast 9-0 on the road in Perkinston, MS. The Golden Eagles were led to victory by Freshman forward Grace Gilmore and defender Emily Welch, who scored two goals each.

The Golden Eagles look to build on a solid 2021 campaign in which they went 10-4-3 and lost to Old Dominion 1-0 in the Conference-USA Championship Game.

Auburn head coach Karen Hoppa will be on the sideline tomorrow after her absence on Thursday night. 

The Tigers were also without Sophomore defender LJ Knox on Thursday night after her brother Luke passed away the day before. There is no word on if she will be playing tomorrow. 

This match will be a good opportunity for Auburn to clean things up before two tough road matches against No. 1 Florida State in Tallahassee, FL on Thursday, and Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, NC on Sunday.

Coverage of tomorrow's contest on WEGL 91.1 FM will begin at 1:45 P.M.
