Big West Tournament: Women's Soccer
If the women's soccer team prevails against Cal State Northridge, Your 49ers will play against either No. 1 UC Irvine or No. 4 UC Davis Sunday, November 6th. If UC Irvine wins, Long Beach State will travel to Irvine on Sunday November to play for the Big West Championship. However, if UC Davis wins, Long Beach State will host at home on Sunday to play for the title.
Along with clinching Big West Tournament berth, junior Nadia Link was named Big West Offensive Player of the Week with her spectacular performance this past weekend. It is her second weekly honor this season, and the third of her career at Long Beach State. On the week, Link led Your 49ers in goals (2), assists (3), point (7), and shot attempts (9). She leads the Big West in goals (14), assists (10) and points (38), and ranks among the top three in the LBSU single-season record books in each of those categories. Nadia is the third 49er in school history, and the first since the program was reinstated in 1998, to register double figures in both goals and assists. Link has played a pivotal role this season in helping Long Beach State proceed into post-season play.
