West Chester holds off Rollins
Golden Rams return to title game for the first time since 2010
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Another NCAA contest and another textbook defensive performance as No. 7 West Chester stymied No. 3 Rollins all afternoon en route to a 19-10 victory in the NCAA Division II semifinals at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium on Thursday.
West Chester (16-3) advances to the national championship game for the ninth time in the last 12 years and first time since 2010. Rollins (15-2) sees its best campaign in the four-year history of the program come to a close with its second straight loss of the season.
The Golden Rams held the nation’s top scoring offense, which averaged 18 points per game coming in, to just three tallies in the first half. The Tars’ 10 goals marked the lowest output all year for Rollins.
