The Embry-Riddle women’s soccer team fell just short of its goal when they headed to Southern California this week, as they fell 1-0 on Saturday in the Cal Pac Tournament Final. A Westcliff goal in the 32nd minute was the only tally of the contest, and the Eagles were denied its second consecutive Cal Pac Tournament championship.
The Eagles did have its chances to score, as they outshot the Warriors 13-11. Embry-Riddle was also able to get six corner kicks, with four of those coming in the second half.
Annabelle Ruckle made five saves on Saturday, keeping the Eagles in the match and giving her team a chance to rally. In total, ERAU fired five shots on goal throughout the 90 minutes.
Embry-Riddle will now turn its focus to the NAIA National Tournament, as they clinched an automatic bid when they won the Cal Pac Regular Season Championship. The Eagles will find out its placement in the tournament on Monday afternoon, and Varsity Field in Prescott has already been chosen as a host site for the first two rounds.
