College Women's Matchday: Florida Southern at Saint Leo

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

NEED TO KNOW: The Lions will look to continue their run of form against a Florida Southern team that is in contention for the Sunshine State Conference title. Saint Leo has won three straight games, including a 1-0 victory against Barry in its last time out.

After suffering major setbacks early in the season with injury and illness, the Lions appear to have found the rhythm they have been in search of. The trio of Hannah Beard, Sara Macko and Pia Soesemann have been critical to this, with Beard leading the team with 10 goals in nine games. Macko and Soesemann have added six goals apiece as the Bulls have scored 39 goals this season.

Florida Southern drew with Montevallo (Ga.) in their last outing on Tuesday, as former Newsome High standout Morgan Sammons continued her recent run of form with her fifth goal of the season. Princess Haley and Kerri-Ann Brown lead the Moccasins with eight goals apiece, and the key to the game could be who gets on the board first. Both Saint Leo and Florida Southern have scored more goals in the first half than the second this season.
