College Matchday: Saint Leo at Barry

WHEN: Saturday, 7 p.m., Buccaneer Field

NEED TO KNOW: Two teams riding solid winning streaks face off in Miami Shores in a mid-table Sunshine State Conference clash.

The Lions have turned their form around in the last three games, including a 3-1 win against Florida Southern on Wednesday that saw them score twice in the first four minutes to take hold of the game. Jonathan Glenn and Leonardo Nogueira have been integral to the Lions recent success, Nogueira scoring the game-winning goal in the Lions upset of then No.14 Lynn and also finding the net against the Moccasins.

The Buccaneers currently sit third in the SSC standings, and can boost their seeding for the SSC tournament if they extend a five-game winning streak that has included routs in their past two victories. Barry defeated non-conference opponents St. Thomas 5-0 and Johnson and Wales 6-0 over the past eight days. Mark Anderson had three goals in those two games, and leads the Buccaneers with 13 goals.
