49er soccer set for Big West Tourney match with CSUN
Despite a 1-0 loss in the final game of the regular season, LBSU has locked up the No. 2 seed in the Big West Tournament and will host No. 3 seeded Cal State Northridge this Thursday at George Allen Field at 3 p.m.
The semifinal match between the 49ers and Matadors comes just 11 days after LBSU was able to beat CSUN 2-1 on senior day at Long Beach State. In that match, Bo Rael and Lindsay Bullock both netted goals for the 49ers and Emily Kingsborough had another superb afternoon in goal.
LBSU finishes the regular season with a mark of 12-5-2, posting a double digit win total and making it to the Big West Tournament for the fifth time in six years.
The other semi-final matchup will be between No. 1 seed UC Irvine and No. 4 seed Pacific.
The winners of the two semi-final games will battle on Sunday, Nov. 7 at the higher seed's home field for an automatic birth to the NCAA tournament.
