CBU women fall in NAIA soccer tourney
Friday, Dec 3, 2010
By Staff    

DECATUR, Ala. (BP)--California Baptist University will always remember its final appearance in the NAIA Women's Soccer National Championship.

Traveling 2,000 miles to play its second Golden State Athletic Conference rival in as many games, on a soggy and muddy field in near-freezing temperatures, 11th-seed CBU couldn't pull off its second consecutive upset and instead had its season come to a close with a 3-0 loss to third-seed Azusa Pacific at the Jack Allen Recreational Complex Dec. 2.

"It is an honor to be in this tournament, and we did some very good things today," said CBU Head Coach Kristen St. Clair. "We created some chances and were unlucky a couple of times on the finishing end, but they were just sharper than us. Soccer is a humbling game and today wasn't our day."

The loss brings the Lancers' 2010 campaign to a close at 15-6-2, while the Cougars advance to the semifinals for the fourth time in the past five seasons and improve to 19-1-2, their only loss this year to the Lancers.

The season was the final one for the Lancers as a full-fledged NAIA participant. CBU is in the midst of a transition to NCAA Division II.
