Rest up after the big game because Temple Sports Complex is hosting soccer on Saturday, Oct. 22. The women’s team takes on UConn at 1 p.m. The team will be celebrating their senior players at the team's last game of the regular season. Later that evening, the men’s soccer team goes head to head with Tulsa at 7 p.m.

The momentum continues as Temple hosts the 10th annual Philly 5 Tournament on Sunday, Oct. 23. The tournament features the top lacrosse talent in the area. Schools participating with Temple are Drexel, La Salle, Saint Joseph’s and Villanova.

Every team will face each other in a series of games running from 8 a.m. to 4:35 p.m. If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience the Temple Sports Complex yet, this is a great time to take a tour of the new facility while enjoying some spirited competition.

Tours will be offered from 2:30-3:30 p.m. and there will be a reception for lacrosse parents and alumni at 4:30 p.m.
