NWC Title Comes Down to Last Day - Saturday's Women's Soccer Recap
The Northwest Conference Women's Soccer Title comes down to the final day of the regular season. With a win over Pacific (Ore.), the University of Puget Sound would claim the NWC crown and the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. If Pacific (Ore.) and Puget Sound end in a draw, the Loggers are co-champions with Linfield. Linfield would receive the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament based on a Conference tiebreaker. A Puget Sound loss means the Northwest Conference title and the AQ will go to the Linfield Wildcats.
