Michael Mordocco will begin his first season as head coach of the LIU Post men’s soccer team at home against Bloomfield College on August 21, one of 18 matches on the team’s 2018 schedule.

Following four matches away from Pioneer Soccer Park, which includes two at Adelphi University as part of that school’s Alumni Invitational, LIU Post returns home to face East Stroudsburg University on September 9 and the East Coast Conference opener against the University of Bridgeport on September 15.

In addition to its matchup with Adelphi on August 30, other Long Island rivalry matchups on the schedule this year include a trip to Rockville Centre to face Molloy College on September 22 and an end-of-the-season tilt against NYIT in Old Westbury on October 27.

Looking to defend its 2017 ECC title, LIU Post opens postseason play with the semifinal round of the ECC Tournament on October 31, with the championship scheduled for November 3. The NCAA will announce the national championship field on November 5.

The Pioneers will look to return to the national stage following an 18-1-2 overall record a year ago, including a trip to the NCAA Division II quarterfinals.
