Three straight wins have sent the Warriors to the Elite Eight competition of the NCAA tournament following victories over Seattle Pacific, Western Washington University and Cal Poly Pomona.
Success is not unknown to the women’s soccer team, as they won CCAA championship titles in 2011 and 2013. After missing the CCAA tournament altogether this season, no one could have predicted a better outcome for the Warriors in the national tournament.
Goals from Jade Poon, Jordan Moineau, Tina Benson and Kirsten Coleman have led the Warriors to outscoring their national opponents 5-1 and keeping their opponents scoreless in the last two matches. The Warriors advanced to face No. 7 ranked Colorado School of Mines.
The Orediggers were outplayed as the Warriors maintained possession of the ball for most of the game and outshot their opponents 7-2. However, none of those shots touched the back of the net and the teams faced off in a penalty kick shootout. It was a shootout the Warriors would not win as their season ended in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Division II Soccer tournament.
