Two weekends of college soccer remain and the highlight of this weekend is the Women’s DI College Cup being played in San Jose today and Sunday. NAIA and DIII Finals are also on tap while the DI Men and the DII Men and Women will determine participants in their respective Championships this weekend. Penultimate College Soccer Weekend
Games of local interest are primarily DII matches as the Regional titles (Sweet 16) are determined today with the UCM Jennies facing MN State while UIndy take on GVSU, who will be even more interesting next year with Mackenzie Jones joining the team in Michigan. The games have been moved due to field conditions so I’ve linked to the host site where stream information hopefully will be available soon.
On the Men’s side, Maryville is at Bellarmine and UIndy face Ohio Valley. There is a live stream being provided by Bellarmine, link in the table below. The NAIA also completes their season this weekend and Columbia College, who I featured recently, will play in the semifinal tonight with the Final on the horizon Saturday which will be broadcast on ESPN3.
Check out my College news for more details on the teams and their local players.
The Women’s College Cup will feature the three Finalists for the MAC Hermann Trophy. The three women’s finalists are UCLA senior midfielder Jessie Fleming (London, Ontario, Canada), North Carolina junior defender Emily Fox (Ashburn, Va.) and Stanford junior midfielder Catarina Macario (San Diego, Calif.). Macario was the 2018 Hermann Trophy winner and was named the 2019 Pac-12 Midfielder of the Year after earning Forward of the Year honors her first two seasons.
