No. 3 Walsh Hosts First Tournament Game Since 1998

(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) - After the best regular season in program history, Walsh is ready for its G-MAC Tournament debut as it hosts Trevecca Nazarene for the second time this season. It's the first home playoff game for the Cavaliers in nearly 20 years.

The last time Walsh hosted a women's soccer tournament game came back during the 1998 season when the Cavs shut out St. Vincent 3-0 in the AMC Playoffs. The Maroon and Gold finish 11-8-2 that season.

The Cavaliers (14-3), who enter as the No. 3 seed, defeated the Trojans (8-5-3) back on September 21 by a score of 3-2.

At that point in the season, it was the first time a team had scored against the Cavaliers who opened the season with five-straight shutouts. Walsh went on to shutout 11 opponents total with eight coming in the G-MAC. In total, Walsh has given up just 10 goals on the season, second to only Ohio Valley's eight.

On the opposite end, the Cavaliers have also had firepower offensively as Olivia Peters was a point shy of having the most in the G-MAC. She ended the regular season with 12 goals and a conference-best 13 assists for 37 points. Trevecca's Hannah Barney finished second to her with 10 assists on the year.

Kickoff from Milazzo Field is set for 2 p.m.
