BIG WEST AT A GLANCE

REGULAR SEASON COMES TO A CLOSE

The 2016 Big West women’s soccer regular season comes to a close this Sunday evening. With eight matchups on deck, seven teams vie for a chance to advance to the 16th BWT all-time in UC Irvine, CSUN, Cal State Fullerton, Long Beach State, UC Santa Barbara, Hawai‘i and UC Davis.

Check out te Big West Tournament website HERE.

HUNT FOR REGULAR SEASON CROWN
The hunt for the regular season crown will come to a close this Sunday with the conclusion of the final match. As you remember, the Big West Conference crowned tri-champions in 2015 including UC Santa Barbara, Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton who also went on to claim the Big West Tournament title. CSUN and UC Irvine currently own a 13-point advance, though the race is tight with Cal State Fullerton (12 points) and Long Beach State (11 points) just behind. Should Irvine and CSUN both win-out, CSUN owns the head-to-head matchup with the Anteaters after recording a 1-0 shutout victory on October 16. The last time the following teams won a regular season title:

CAL STATE FULLERTON: 2015
CSUN: NA
UC IRVINE:  2011
UC SANTA BARBARA: 2015

If the Tournament was today, those would also be the four teams competing at George Allen Field in a week’s time.

RIVERSIDE BRINGS HOME RECOGNITIONSalt
For the first time all season, a single program swept the weekly awards. Freshman defender Amanda Roy and senior midfielder Blanca Barrio aided UC Riverside in two back-to-back shutout wins for a perfect weekend over UC Santa Barbara (3-0) and Cal Poly (1-0).

JOVANI McCASKILL CHASES MARK
CSUN’s junior goalkeeper Jovani McCaskill set a new Matador record earlier this year with 12 shutouts on the season. McCaskill is currently tied for the most clean sheets in a single campaign in the Big West record book and has the opportunity to set  new record in the category with two outings this weekend. CSUN also set a new team mark with 13 shutouts on the year for the second-most in Big West history. The current record stands at 15 clean sheets in the league record book.

BIG MATCHUPS
OCT. 27 - UC DAVIS at UC Santa Barbara
Heading into a crucial matchup Thursday, both UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara enter the showdown with seven points apiece. The winner will remain in the hunt for a Big West Tournament berth while the losing team will miss out on a chance to advance to the 2016 women’s soccer tourney. UC Santa Barbara looks to make back to back appearances in the Tournament while UC Davis looks  to make the tourney for the first time since 2011.
