NEED TO KNOW: Saint Leo opens its Sunshine State Conference schedule with what appears on paper to be a potentially easy victory against Eckerd. The Tritons are winless so far this season, and went winless in the SSC a season ago, while the Lions were picked as the preseason favorite to win the conference.
Saint Leo (1-0-1) left it late to grab victory against Robert Morris on Thursday night, Sara Macko’s penalty giving the Lions a 3-2 victory after they had lost a 2-0 half time lead.
The Tritons, on the other hand, fell 4-0 to Embry-Riddle last Sunday in their last game, and have only scored once in four games. Spencer Janicki found the net for the Tritons (0-3-1) in a 1-1 tie against Warner International.
