Get ready for another rivalry game. The tension between Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara women’s soccer has grown immensely since Cal Poly was eliminated from the Big West conference tournament last season. On Oct. 29, the Mustangs will host the Gauchos at Alex G. Spanos Stadium for a rematch.
Cal Poly, ranked No. 1 going into the tournament last year, lost to the Gauchos on penalty kicks after a tough game with many unlucky breaks for the squad.
This year, however, the Mustangs hope to utilize the talented incoming freshman class as well as the returning players from last year’s team. After losing their Goalkeeper of the Year, Coral Hoover, the Mustangs are looking for someone to fill her shoes.
As any rivalry game goes, this one is guaranteed to be a game to watch. With both teams coming into the season ready to take the top spot in the conference, both the Mustangs and the Gauchos know that one must prevail in order to receive the title.
Game time is set for 7:00 p.m.
