The season is just getting underway and already the women’s soccer team is shaping up as a formidable opponent. Case in point: during a recent match the team upset #8 Portland with a 2-0 victory. It is the biggest win in the program’s history against the high ranking squad from the Rose City and for SU’s team marks the highest ranked opponent to be beaten by any SU team since reclassifying back to Division I.

The team has many matches ahead on its home turf of Championship Field. Get the full schedule of upcoming games.
