UF is one of eight programs playing host to 2012 NCAA Second and Third Round action this weekend. The winners from Friday’s second round matches meet Sunday at 1 p.m. in the NCAA Third Round. The winner of Sunday’s match advances to NCAA Quarterfinal play, which will be held Nov. 23, 24 or 25 on four campus sites. The Women’s College Cup is set for Nov. 30 and Dec. 2 in San Diego, Calif., at the University of San Diego’s Torero Stadium.


This is the third time in the last six seasons Florida and UCF meet in NCAA Second Round action, with UF advancing in 2007 and 2008. UCF ended Florida’s 2011 season by a 3-2 score. All-time, UF owns a 3-2-1 advantage over UCF in NCAA action and all six previous post-season meetings were at Pressly Stadium.


Florida moved to NCAA Second Round play after a 2-0 win over Florida Gulf Coast on Nov. 9 in Gainesville. Senior All-American Erika Tymrak played a role in both goals. She used the back-heel pass from junior Adriana Leon to score on a 12-yard shot in the 21st minute. Sophomore Annie Speese used the end line cross from Tymrak to score her sixth goal of the season in the 76th minute to give Florida the final margin.


Tymrak leads the Gators’ in goals (9), assists (11) and points (29). Senior Jo Dragotta and sophomore Havana Solaun each have seven goals to share second. Solaun’s 22 points is second on the team. Tymrak’s 103 points place her sixth on Florida’s career chart with fellow senior McKenzie Barney in eighth at 72.


A 5-3 penalty kick advantage sends UCF to the NCAA Second Round after tying Miami (Fla.) 1-all in double overtime Saturday in Orlando. UCF entered the Miami match with a seven-match shutout streak and shares the C-USA season record with 15 clean sheets in 2012. The Knights posted 2-0 wins in each of their three Conference USA Tournament matches to claim its first C-USA Tournament title. Senior Nicolette Radovcic leads UCF with 12 goals and 27 points and was the C-USA Tournament Offensive MVP.
