Women's Soccer Prepares For NCAA South Region Tournament

Women's Soccer Prepares For NCAA South Region Tournament
Senior Sofia Jakobson and the Buccaneers head back to NCAA Tournament for first time since 2005.

WINTER PARK, Fla. – Barry University women’s soccer team returns to postseason action for the first time since 2005 this Friday when they face No. 21 Tampa at Barker Family Stadium in the first-round of the NCAA Division II South Region Tournament.

For the Buccaneers, (7-6-2, 3-4-1 SSC) it’s been a season filled with highs and lows, and although decimated by injuries, this resilient group battled down the stretch to earn an at-large bid into the tournament.

Awaiting the Buccaneers is a familiar foe in Tampa. The Buccaneers suffered a pair of losses to the Spartans (13-3-4, 5-1-2 SSC) in the regular season during a difficult five-game losing streak in middle of the year. However, the Bucs re-grouped to win four of their final six matches going 4-0-2 down the stretch to make a final push towards the postseason.

Barry’s last appearance in the NCAA Tournament resulted in a 3-1 loss at the hands of the Spartans.

Friday night’s game scheduled kickoff is set for 7 p.m.,  at Barker Family Stadium on the campus of Rollins College. Live-stat and video coverage will be available throughout the tournament.
