Illinois Central College Next for BCC's Women's Soccer Team
October 10, 2012 - With the season's first objective of qualifying for the NJCAA Division I postseason realized, the Brevard Community College women's soccer team heads back to Polk State College for a 7 p.m. Thursday match with Illinois Central College.
BCC is 8-1 overall while ICC is 6-8. BCC qualified for the postseason by winning 1-0 at Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference and NJCAA Region 8 foe Polk on Monday.
BCC travels to Mississippi on Nov. 3 for the district final to determine whether it advances to the NJCAA national tournament from Nov. 11-17 at Melbourne Central Catholic.
The ICC game will allow BCC head coach Jeff Carr and his staff another opportunity to try different players at different positions as they continue to wrestle with a roster depleted by injuries.
"We will play a similar lineup on Thursday evening and hope for no more injuries," Carr said. "Illinois Central has had some great results this year and their record Is not indicative of the type of team they are. They are well coached and are very dangerous."
Beyond Thursday BCC plays its final home game of the season at 11 a.m. Sunday against Middle Georgia at Max K. Rodes Park in West Melbourne. BCC concludes the regular season with road matches against Dakota County Technical College of Minnesota at 4 p.m. Oct. 20 at Polk; at Polk State at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 and at conference and region foe Broward College at 3 p.m. on Oct. 26.
Sophomore Lois Edvardsson leads BCC in scoring with seven goals while fellow sophomore Courtney Hueston has five including Monday's game winner. Freshman goalkeeper Julia Kantor has 25 saves in eight games and has posted four shutouts.
BCC is ranked second nationally in the NJCAA Division I poll and seventh in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll.
