In the first round of the single elimination NAIA Women’s Soccer National Tournament Haley Parzonko scored two minutes and four seconds into the first overtime period to defeat Carroll (Mont.) and send the #10 Warriors (16-3-2) to the round of sixteen in Orange Beach, Alabama. The final score was 2-1.

The Saints (12-4-5) scored first when in the 19th minute Michaela Kueffler crossed the ball to Cassidy Hammons who slotted the ball into the left side of the goal from eight yards out. Ninety seconds later, Westmont’s Renee Gonsalves scored the equalizer with a far post header off of a corner kick by Parzonko.

“On their goal we had a loose defensive breakdown and I think our response to get a goal off of a set piece today was huge for us,” explained head coach Chantel Cappuccilli.

The official Opening Round pairings for the 2016 NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship have been announced and the #10 Warriors (15-3-2) are set to host the Carroll (Mont.) Saints (12-3-5) this coming Saturday.

The Saints earned an automatic bid into the NAIA Tournament after winning the Cascade Collegiate Conference Tournament in a 2-1 victory over Northwest University. Leading up to the championship game, they defeated both the College of Idaho and Rocky Mountain College in penalty kicks.

Their head coach is David Thorvilson and in his two years in this role he has lead the Saints to back-to-back conference championships. This past season, Carroll goal keeper Jamie Carter received her third consecutive CCC player of the year award. Carter had the best goals against average in the conference and eighth best in the NAIA at .729.

In the semifinal round of the Women’s Soccer Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament, tenth ranked Westmont Women’s Soccer (15-3-2) fell to #8 Biola (15-0-2) by a score of 0-1.

“Within the first half we were able to implement what we needed to tactically to dominate,” explained head coach Cappuccilli. “All in all we had a significant amount of opportunities within the first half to potentially put us in a position to get a goal, however it didn’t come off how we would have hoped and they connected on one of their opportunities.”

In the first half the Warriors had 14 shots and Biola had 5. Overall, the Warriors had 26 shots and Biola had 12.

In the first round of the Women’s Soccer Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament, Westmont’s Kira Nemeth scored the game winning goal 22 seconds into the second overtime period (100th minute) to advance the 11th ranked Warriors to the semifinals.

I am pleased with our ability to be relentless and tenacious in an overtime setting,” reflected head coach Chantel Cappuccilli. “On the day we showed a lot of heart, grit and stamina. We created significant opportunities within the match that didn’t come off as hoped, but finding the back of the net, at home, in double overtime is a good feeling. That feeling will carry into our next game as well.
