Preview the 2009 Big West Women’s Soccer Tournament with head coaches Keith West and Scott Juniper in interviews now on BigWest.TV. The Big West Women’s Soccer Tournament kicks off on Thursday, November 5 when second-seeded Cal State Northridge hosts defending Big West Tournament champ UC Santa Barbara at 1:00 pm PT.  The second semi-final match will kick off at 7:00 p.m. from Cal Poly's Alex G. Spanos Stadium, when top-seeded Cal Poly faces No. 4 UC Irvine. The Big West Tournament Championship is scheduled for Sunday, November 8 at 1:00 p.m. at a site to be determined.

The upstart Cal State Northridge Matadors (10-9-0 overall, 6-2-0 Big West) earned their first trip to the Big West Tournament since 2004 and will host the program's first-ever post-season match.  They will face UC Santa Barbara (8-9-2, 5-2-1), who were also the team the Matadors faced in their 2004 appearance.  The Gauchos have won eight of the last nine meetings between the teams, including a 3-2 victory in Northridge on October 4.  Hear what CSUN coach Keith West & junior defender Katie Fox had to say after the Matadors had clinched their second seed in the Big West Tournament.

Picked to finish third in the Big West pre-season poll, Cal Poly saw a resurgence in 2009 to return to the top of the Big West and claim their sixth regular-season conference crown.  This season, the Mustangs finished 13-5-0 overall and 7-1-0 in conference play.  Cal Poly will face the rising UC Irvine Anteaters (12-6-2, 4-3-1), who last made the Big West Tournament in 2007.  Find out what Anteaters coach Scott Juniper has to say about the challenges they will face against the ever-dangerous Mustangs.
