Still Alive

FOLEY, Alabama — Arizona Western women’s soccer can take a deep breath with at least one more day of life.

The Lady Matadors will play Eastern Florida State College on Wednesday evening (6:30 EST) with a chance to advance to the NJCAA Division I semifinals on Friday.

EFST defeated Laramie County Community College 4-0. Eastern Florida outshot Laramie 19-5.

If AWC wins tomorrow, the group would go into a three-way tie. The team that advances would need to have the best goal differential (+/-) in the group.

The forecast for Wednesday’s game is 49 degrees with rain at the start time, which offers similar conditions to the Mats’ first game.

If AWC advances, the semifinals begin on Friday afternoon.

The other Arizona team in the NCJAA tournament was eliminated tonight. Paradise Valley Community College went 0-2 as it lost to Navarro 2-1.
