Two nationally ranked NJCAA women's soccer programs face off on October 10 as 7th-ranked Seminole State College visits 10th-ranked Rose State College in a battle for the top of NJCAA Region 2. These teams sit atop the conference, with only a few weeks left before the NJCAA Regional Tournament. In first-place in the NJCAA Region 2 standings is Rose State College, with Seminole State at number two.
Rose State College and Seminole State College are the only NJCAA women’s soccer programs in Oklahoma currently ranked in the top 25. This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season with the first ending in a 0-0 tie.
The Rose State College women (9-1-2 overall, 6-0-2 conference) boast a potent offense and a stern back line, anchored by goalkeeper Adrianna Schroeder. Rose State has only given up four goals all season, with Schroeder holding one of the best goals-against averages in the conference. Rose State has two of the top three goal scorers in the conference in April Hill and Laura Caraval Granados. Hill is tied for most goals in the conference with Murray State's Alexes Sanchez, and Granados has shown to be incredibly efficient, notching ten goals on only thirty-five attempts.
Seminole State College (9-0-2 overall, 6-0-1 conference) also boasts a stout defense. Seminole goalkeeper Giselle Longoria has allowed only three goals in the net this season - best in the nation.
Kickoff for the matchup between Rose State College and Seminole State College will be 1 pm at Rose State College. Admission is free for Rose State College students, faculty, and staff, and $5 for Adults, $3 for Seniors, and $2 for Youth.
