College Women's Matchday: Rollins at Saint Leo

WHEN: Wednesday, 7:30 p.m., University Field.

NEED TO KNOW: The Lions look for back-to-back Sunshine State Conference victories as they face Rollins. The Tars are perceived to be the biggest obstacle in the way of the Lions for the conference title.

Currently ranked No.9 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division II poll, Rollins has lost only once this season, to No.2 West Florida, and has been dominant in its last two outings. The Tars defeated Thomas University 9-0 and Flagler College 5-0 in the last 10 days. While Chelsea Brady leads the Tars with five goals in seven games, seven players have multiple goals this season for the Tars.

Saint Leo currently sits just outside the NSCAA Top 25, having played only three games this season thanks to disruptions caused by the weather and illness. Nonetheless, the Lions have opened the season well, winning two straight games, including a 6-0 win against Eckerd on Saturday evening. Part of the reason for the strong start has been the addition of Jasmine Johnson, a transfer from Florida, who has generated rave reviews from teammates for her play so far.
