The UC Davis women’s soccer team will officially open the 2014-15 Aggie Athletic season when it plays an Aug. 22 contest at Sacramento State, with five Causeway Cup points on the line.

When UCD tries to continue its seven-year unbeaten streak against the Hornets at 5 p.m. that day, it will be the first of many challenging matches on the Aggies’ schedule, which was announced this week by first-year head coach Twila Kaufman.

Following an Aug. 16 exhibition matchup against Sonoma State at Aggie Stadium, UCD is on the road for two contests, at Sac State and at San Diego State on Aug. 24.

The Aztecs are one of four squads from last season’s NCAA playoffs that the Aggies will face this fall. The other College Cup teams on this year’s docket are Utah (home on Sept. 14),  Santa Clara (on the road, Sept. 21) and Big West rival Cal State Fullerton in a home game on Oct. 5.

UCD’s home opener is set for Aug. 29, when San Jose State is in town for a 5 p.m. match.

Later, a three-match homestand opens with a Sept. 27 game against Pacific (1 p.m.), then includes the Aggies’ first league match of the year Oct. 2 against UC Riverside (4 p.m.).

The conference playoffs begin in early November for UCD, which finished last season at 6-9-3.
