Women's Soccer @ UCLA Open Thread

New, comments

And it has come down to this, basically 3 matches between 3 different teams in their last 3 matches to determine the Pac-12 Women's Soccer title (though each of the 3 all have to play USC as well). Who will reign supreme in Pac-12 Women's Soccer? Will it be the defending NCAA Champions, No. 1 ranked Stanfurd? Will it be 2nd ranked team in the country, UCLA? Or will it be a mild upset and be the currently No. 21st ranked California Golden Bears? Bears need a win today, going for 9 W's in a row, to stay in the hunt. ROLL ON YOU BEARS!

Will Betsy Hassett and the Bears be celebrating this afternoon? They just need to upset UCLA on the road.

Winner of the past 8 straight, the Golden Bears (14-3, 7-1) are ranked either 10th or 21st (depending on the poll of your choice) and in prime position to possibly win the conference. Standing in their way today is No. 2 UCLA (14-0-2, 7-0-1).

For the Bears to keep their conference hope realistic, they would need a Win (and not just a draw) against UCLA and take care of business against Furd (14-1-1-, 8-0) next week, while not overlook U$C (5-8-3, 2-4-2) on Sunday [apparently there may be an online stream of Sunday's game].

In addition to the 8 game win streak, the Bears also possess a perfect 7-0 record on the road this season. Last years, the Bears played the Bruins to a 0-0 draw in Berkeley.

Last week in Cal Women's Soccer: Bears swept the Washington schools at home by the scores of 2-1 over UDub and 3-2 over Wazzu. Betsy Hassett (pictured) scored two goals last weekend.

The last two weekend of Pac-12 Women's Soccer should be rather exciting. Beside the conference title, a win would also go a long way toward the Bears' NCAA seeding. So be sure to check out this one brightest spot of the Cal Fall sports of 2012.

GO BEARS!
