College Matchday: No.9 Tampa at Nova Southeastern

WHEN: Wednesday, 7 p.m., NSU Soccer Complex

NEED TO KNOW: The Spartans will try to rebound from their first loss of the season as they face a Nova Southeastern squad that has struggled to find form of late.

The Sharks have lost two straight games, falling to Palm Beach Atlantic and Florida Tech in the past week, and four of their last five. NSU did give No.3 Rollins a run, falling 3-2 two weeks ago, but overall they rank No.8 in the conference scoring only 1.40 goals per game.

The Spartans would need Rollins to slip up to claim a share of the SSC title after the Tars 3-2 victory on Saturday night. The Spartan defense statistically has been better than it was last season, with goalkeeper Ryan Thompson currently second in the conference with a .817 save percentage, but the Spartans would like to cut down the number of scoring chances they are allowing opponents.
