Women's Soccer Tournament

2nd Round halfway complete; games of interest:

  1. (7) Texas A&M defeated South Florida, 2-0.

  2. Ole Miss upset (8) Southern Cal, 2-2 (3-2 PKs)

(6) Arkansas plays Utah Valley tomorrow afternoon.

Talked to a guy today who works as an usher for athletic events at UNC-Wilmington. He worked the Ole Miss-USC match that went to penalties last week. Said it was a really good match.

Wonder how much gas is in Ole Miss’ tank.

In their two matches combined:

4 OT Periods (@ 10 minutes each)
12 Rounds of PKs

It’s a possibility that their needle is on E. PKs are only mentally taxing but 220 minutes in a short period is a lot. Pro teams would generally shuffle their lineup with that kind of load but in the NCAAT that’s not much of an option. Of course they can substitute which pro teams can’t.
