The LSU and TCU women's beach volleyball teams meet in the consolation round of the 2021 NCAA Beach Volleyball Championships on Friday, May 7. TCU won the No. pairs first set.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaand exhale. After 110 minutes of scoreless soccer on Sunday afternoon, the NCAA tournament match between Marquette and Loyola Marymount had to be settled on penalty kicks. It got settled quickly, as Beto Soto and Lukas Sunesson both scored easily on their kicks at #1 and #2 in the order while LMU’s Noel Caliskan had his shot saved by Marquette keeper Chandler Hallwood and Bastien Oberli missed his shot high and to the left.
This is also the fifth NCAA tournament game played in Marquette men’s soccer history, as the Golden Eagles have only won a game in the event once before. That was a 1-0 overtime win over Akron at an absolutely frigid Valley Fields back in 2013. Much like that match back then, Marquette will be vying for a spot in the Sweet 16 on Sunday afternoon.
