The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast is Providence women’s head coach Sam Lopes.
Lopes is in his 10th season at the helm for Providence. His program has finished with a winning record seven times and earned an at-large bid into the Division 1 NCAA Tournament in 2021.
This season, Providence is off to an impressive 6-2-0 start and already has five shutouts to its credit. The Friars won their Big East opener last Thursday, 3-1 over Seton Hall.
Lopes, who played at Quinnipiac and has had various other coaching stints throughout New England, joined host Matt Langone to discuss the Providence program and the keys to the team’s success thus far in 2023.
