Friday marks the opening day for the University of South Carolina at Lancaster women’s and men’s soccer program.

The Lancers will play their home matches on campus this season at their new field located below the Carol Ray Dowling Center off Hubbard Drive.

The 2012 season is the first campaign for the men’s soccer program.

Coach Randy Jordan moves over from the USCL women’s program to guide the new men’s program. Jordan, a Lancaster native, coached high school soccer at Andrew Jackson High School before moving to the USCL program.

Jordan is assisted by Dave Parnell and Danny Kennington. Lewis Berry will coach the goalkeepers for both squads.

Nicole Bulinsky, who assisted Jordan in the USCL women’s program, will now lead the women’s program.

The Lady Lancers, in their 6th rear, open play Friday at 2 p.m., with the USCL men to play at 4. Both teams face the Middle Georgia College Warriors in their opening matches.

No admission is charged for either match.

Fans attending the matches are asked to park on the west side parking lot of the Dowling Center, leaving the east lot reserved for center patients.

 “With a new season, new team, new coaches and new field, these are four reasons to come out and support the Lancers,” Jordan said.
