Eclipse Select Alumni: Pappalardo leads Colorado to Round of 32

Olivia Pappalardo
Eclipse Select Soccer Club alumna and Colorado junior Olivia Pappalardo (Niles, Ill.) scored the opening goal – which proved to be the winner – and the Buffaloes defeated BYU in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in Boulder, Colo.

With chilly conditions and a snow-covered pitch, Pappalardo wasted little time giving her side the upper hand. In the seventh minute, she launched a 20-yard shot past BYU goalkeeper Katherine Snyder and into the upper right corner of the net to take a 1-0 lead. It was Pappalardo’s second goal of the season and third of her collegiate career.

Elsewhere, Illinois State sophomore midfielder Dagny Olson (Champaign, Ill.) played an integral role in leading Illinois State to a 3-2 victory against South Florida on Saturday in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in Tampa, Fla.
