The second time is twice as nice. For the second straight year, Saint Louis University is in the NCAA women’s soccer tournament. The Billikens advanced to the NCAA’s by winning the Atlantic-10 tourney 2-1 over Fordham Sunday.
Fordham scored their one and only goal in the 22nd minute, but allowed SLU to rally for two goals by freshmen Maggie Farrell and Julia Bradenberg. Bradenberg’s goal proved to be the game-winner in the 53rd minute. It was a spectacular goal that she scored while her back was to the goal and had no idea where the goalie was.
The field for the 64-team tournament will be announced today between 2 and 3 p.m. The Billikens will also find out where they will play and who it will be against. First-round play begins this weekend.
