Game preview: Seattle vs Texas on Sunday

Texas will not play on Friday but will have a non-conference game on Sunday against Seattle University at 1:00pm at Mike Myers Stadium. – Seattle’s current RPI is 104 and their record is 10-5-0. They had a big win over Portland earlier this season, beating them 2-0. They also beat San Diego State handily by a score of 3-1.

Seattle is a Division I Independent but will be joining the WAC next year. For detailed info about their team, go to AWK’s article here. Seattle Head Coach Julie Woodward is in her 15th year coaching the Redhawks. She was also a player at the school back when they were in Division II, and she was a two-time NAIA All-American. She graduated from Seattle University in 1993.

Unfortunately, injuries have cut deep into the Horns line-up late in the season. Texas will be without Taylor Knaack at the forward position who is out for the rest of the year with an injured knee. Also out is Amanda Lisberger with an injured knee. Kylie Doniak also has an injured knee but will get in some playing time towards the end of each half.

Texas’ current RPI going in to Sunday’s game is 61. (It shifted 3 points upward since the loss to Tech because of movement in the RPI of other teams.)

The game will be broadcast on the Longhorn Network. (And coincidentally this will be the first time the Seattle Redhawks will play on live television, a fact they are rather excited about.)
