Arkansas soccer coach Colby Hale speaks Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2017, to members of his team at Razorback Field in Fayetteville.

The University of Arkansas soccer team will open the season today at UNC-Greensboro. The match is scheduled for a 6 p.m. start

The Razorbacks were 14-5-4 last season under Coach Colby Hale, who is 83-57-16 in seven seasons at Arkansas. Hale has coached the program to five NCAA Tournament appearances, including each of the past three seasons.

Arkansas returns top goal-scorers Tori Cannata, Taylor Malham and Marissa Kinsey, who accounted for 19 of the team’s 43 goals scored in 2018.

The Razorbacks, who will be featured on the ESPN networks four times this season, will host Oklahoma at 6 p.m. Sunday in their home opener.
