Women's Soccer Weekly Release No. 4
BIG WEST AT A GLANCE
MATADORS REMAIN UNBEATEN
After six matches, CSUN remains the only unbeaten squad in the Big West Conference. At 2-0-4, the Matadors have matched the 2001 team’s 5-0-1 record through as many contests without a loss to open a campaign.
Five of CSUN’s six matches this season have been decided in overtime, the most of any conference squad in 2017.
CSUN head coach Keith West on CSUN’s unbeaten start: “I think last year’s squad set the tome and this year’s team has brought that same mentality each game. We keep grinding and grinding to the finish. I’m very proud of this team coming back here today and competing for 110 minutes. We’re bending but we’re not breaking.”
McCASKILL WITH RECORD BOOK NUMBERS
CSUN senior goalkeeper Jovani McCaskill (2016 Goalkeeper of the Year), notched her 23rd career shutout after recording two clean sheets last weekend. The senior’s 23 shutouts tie for ninth-best in the Big West record book. Her two this season tie for second-best in league.
AGGIES ARE GOLDEN
In a double overtime duel with San Francisco, UC Davis senior Mandy MdKeegan “came up golden” for the Aggies with a converted free kick in the 104th minute to help UCD earn a 2-1 (2OT) win. Friday marked Davis’ first victory of the season after the Aggies defeated the Dons in a thrilling fashion. McKeegan now has two scores on the year, which ties for sixth-most in league.

PRIMUS IS PRIME
Cal State Fullerton sophomore Atlanta Primus notched her fourth goal on the year Sunday as the Titans battled Utah. CSF would fall to the Utes in a 2-1 overtime loss, but not before Primus would find the back of the net in the 63rd minute. The forward’s four scores tie for best in league with UC Santa Barbara’s Amanda Ball. The second year has quadrupled her goal total from last season.
INGRASSIA CLOSES IN ON 150
Long Beach State head coach Mauricio Ingrassia is just a single win away from tallying 150 career victories. The Beach will host San Diego Friday, before traveling to Loyola Marymount, Sunday.
CSUN HOME TO TOURNAMENT IN 2017
CSUN will host the 2017 Big West Women’s Soccer Tournament from November 2-5 at Matador Soccer Field. Consistent with previous years, the four teams with the best marks in league at the close of the regular season will earn berths to the conference tournament.
