BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--The UAB women's soccer team will host the UAB Alumni Friday afternoon at West Campus Field with the match set to kick off at 4:30 p.m. CT.

Approximately 14-16 former UAB women's soccer players will be on hand this weekend to partake in a number of team festivities, including Friday's game.

Last week, UAB (0-2-0) opened the season on the road in Oregon, facing Oregon State on Friday, and Oregon on Sunday. Against the Beavers, the Blazers came out with high energy, and held off the defense until Oregon State hit a goal late in the 88th minute to take the 1-0 win. Two days later, against the Ducks, the squad gave up an early goal, and while there was a number of scoring opportunities for UAB, Oregon took the 2-0 win.

Up next, the Blazers will open the 2012 home slate hosting in-state foe Alabama (1-0) on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 1 p.m. CT. Live stats for the match will be available here.
