The Drake men’s soccer team will close out a brief spring schedule with an exhibition against the Des Moines Menace on Saturday night. Members of the Premier Development League, the Menace open their regular season next Wednesday night.
Drake coach Sean Holmes says they are allowed to play five dates every spring and they try to play local games to keep withing their budget. He says it will be a good way for his team to head into the summer, as it is the last chance for the guys to put an impression in the coaching staff’s mind.
Drake graduated six seniors last year and they are looking to fill in the holes from that NCAA tourney team.
Drake made it all the way to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament last year.
