Women’s Soccer Hosts Boston College in NCAA Tourney

The top seeded Penn State Women’s Soccer team will be looking to extend its season and move on to the Round of 16 as the Nittany Lions (18-3-1) host the Boston College Eagles (10-5-3) in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at Jeffrey Field tonight.

The match begins at 7:30 p.m, and there may be some extra emotion early on after some extremely crude and offensive tweets resulted in the suspension of Eagles sophomore forward Stepanie McCaffrey last night. McCaffrey was a big contributor on offense, and her absence may hurt the Eagles who come in as underdogs against a Nittany Lions squad that has only lost one game at home all season.

Both teams enter pretty well-rested. The Nittany Lions defeated Long Island Brooklyn last Saturday 4-0 behind a great game from junior forward Maya Hayes while the Eagles defeated Hofstra 2-0 last Friday.

If the Nittany Lions come away victorious, it will be a much quicker turnaround. Michigan and Portland play at 5 p.m. today, and they would host the winner of that matchup on Sunday at 7 p.m.

These two squads have a bit of tournament history with the Nittany Lions winning a 1-0 game in November 2006 to advance to the NCAA Quarterfinals.

More than half a decade later, the Nittany Lions will attempt to eliminate the Eagles again in what would be a memorable win after yesterday’s fireworks.
