College Women's Matchday: Saint Leo at No.17 Florida Tech

WHEN: Tuesday, 4 p.m., Rick Stottier Field

NEED TO KNOW: The Lions begin a final three-game road stint to end the season at No.17 Florida Tech, looking to rebound from a 4-1 defeat to Florida Southern on Saturday night.

In an oddity on the schedule, this is a non-conference conference game. The Panthers and Lions already met in their scheduled conference meeting this season, Florida Tech taking a 4-2 victory at University Field on Oct. 3 Seniors Teresa Brantley and Melissa Pyles took both of the conferences Players of the Week awards, Brantley winning the Offensive Player of the Week award for the second time this season.

The Lions had been on a three-game winning streak before Saturday’s setback, and will be looking for revenge after their defeat earlier in the season. That encounter saw Lions defender Dari Alcantara sent off for a pair of yellow cards, and the Lions fail to find their game consistently against a strong Panthers line-up, who held a 2-1 halftime lead, and expanded it to 4-1 before Hannah Beard pulled one back late.
